http server on suse 9.1

ok, i installed suse 9.1 with 2 intentions. 1. bittorrent anime. goal 1 has been reached. 2. set up http server. goal 2 is not going so easy, i loaded up Yast under suse to discover that there is an http module which got me very excited, i went through the options, set it up, start service. I then put a file into the htdocs folder so i can view it, i then try to access it on another computer and it says that the connection was refused by host...please help...

Do you have a firewall running on the machine? If so, make sure it lets traffic to TCP port 80 (the http service port) through. You can configre this through YaST, but not being a SUSE person I don't know exactly how. If you don't have a firewall, double check that httpd is running ("/etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd status" should tell you) and try connecting from the local machine. If you can't connect from the local machine look at your Apache logs (usually in /var/log/httpd -- there are 2 an access log and an error log) and see if they shed a bit more light on the problem.
