can only access apache website from within network

I have apache running on my slackware 10 box which i am using as a router with ip masquerading but i can only access the successfully installed page from machines on my network. I can sftp and ssh to my box but i can't access my website. Is this an IPTABLES problem? I can also ping my box from another computer. nmap says:

21/tcp open ftp
22/tcp open ssh
25/tcp open smtp
37/tcp open time
53/tcp open domain
80/tcp open http
110/tcp open pop3
111/tcp open rpcbind
113/tcp open auth
139/tcp open netbios-ssn
143/tcp open imap
587/tcp open submission
631/tcp open ipp
901/tcp open samba-swat

http is open, so why can't i access the site?

Just a thought: Could changing the port Apache is running on help? Or do ISPs check all traffic sent to a machine on their network and not allow any incoming HTTP GET or POST requests?
