ftp works but http doesn't :/

Hey everyone,

I am new to linux. I have been playin around for about a week now. I have RedHat 9 installed and I have been trying to get a web server running but I haven't had any luck. I can access my webpage from inside my LAN so I know apache is running, but no one outside it can access it. They just keep getting "Connection Timed out." The strange part is that my ftp server works just fine (not very secure, but hey, I am learning....). This computer is behind a router but the server somputer is set as the DMZ Host so all ports are opened. I even disabled the firewall for linux through Lokkit [just 2 see if that was the problem. But now I have it enabled again(Custom settings to allow web access)]. No luck for anyone outside my network still..

I have no Idea what to do now. I have spent nearly 4 or 5 hours working on it. I wanted to try to figure it out on my own, but sometimes you just need help. Well, now I am asking you guys for help. Anyone have any suggestions?

I have also been using W3C MarkUp Validation Service
to check and see if it is accessable but no luck there either.
