Newbie: Trouble configuring http to respond to outside requests

I am running Mandrake 10 and a Resin 3.0 app server. From my machine I can hit the Resin homepage as root or any other user. But from other machines on the LAN I can not hit the Resin homepage. The connection times out.

I am running a Samba server and the same two machines on the LAN are able to use Samba.

I am unable to ping my Mandrake computer either from itself (ping localhost) or the Windows machine on the LAN (ping ipaddress).

Granted this is probably simple but I'm not sure where to start.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You should probably start by looking at your firewall settings, and the configuration of your eth0 (wired) or wlan0 (wireless) network interface.

You'll find both of these in your configuration tool (which I think is Drakx for Mandrake?)

I've checked the firewall and eth0 with Mandrakelinux Control Center

I've set the firewall to allow ping and web server requests using the Mandrakelinux Control Center. Since my http server is listening on 8080 I added that to the miscellaneous ports on the firewall. Then I set the device to eth0 when prompted. One note, when I go back into the firewall it always resets the "device connected to the internet" to ppp+ and I always have to change it back to eth0. I'm not sure if this is a UI issue or it is actually never saving my change.

I also checked my tcp/ip device for eth0. It is an ethernet card connected to a linksys router. The IP and Netmask are set. It is using DHCP. So as far as I can tell it is good.

But I still do not get a response from ping or http from my other computer on the LAN. Note, Samba seems to work fine.

Any other suggestions? Thanks for any help.
