apache and micticaly closed port

Hi all,
I have server with Linux(Mandrake 9.1) with apache2 on it.
I successfully have run it.
netstat -l shows that server is listening to port http(80),
but i can't access the server from external computer in the LAN.
If I run apache on another port - the same thing happens.
But if i run httpd on port of ftp or ssh , it's possible to access the
server by
server:21 or server:22.
I guess , that somewhere in configuration files the port of http and
other port are closed .
Please help..

check your firewall rules:
iptables -L

You can add a new rule like:
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
