Exclamation View Linux Web-Page on Windows I.E

Hi to all !
I am a Network Admin in linux on a beginners stage, I have prepared a Linux Server and also have configured my DNS, which runs perfectly well, now along with that I have configured my apache as well which runs very well on the server itself. when i give the URL in my Linux system in MOZILLA stating as ......... the appropriate page gets opened. Now I wanna view the same web-page from Windows machine, so i gave the IP addr and port as 80 in Windows LAN settings, and ran the foll URL ...., but SERVER NOT FOUND is the error that I get, I have added Windows Machine entry in my DNS file and also in /etc/hosts, the linux system IP address has also been added inside Windows system in etc directory (host file). HOW can i view the web-page of linux machine from my windows machine.
Pls help me on this issue ...

Things to try..


Can you ping the address of your server?
Can you open the page via IP address?
Can you ping the DNS?

Then work from there......

There is no such thing like Firewall preventing outside connection, I am talking all abt LAN. See my Prob is very much simple here it goes .
1) I have a apache server setup
2) I have also prepared a dir inside /var/www/virtual/, for virtual web-page view.
3) This path that i have mentioned contains index.html
4) Now, when i open up MOZILLA, and give the server name in then URL as, then the appropriate page must be popped up even from the remote system on the LAN.

Can u pls suggest any appropriate soln for this !!!!!!!!

it's either one of the silliest IE bugs yet or you're using different name servers as a resolver on each machine.

perhaps specify

insert your domain as preferred...??? I've found once or twice that I need to name index.html even though it's speified as default.
