apache address problem??

Mandrake v9.1
Apache v2
Using Webmin v1.

I have a bit of a problem when I type in my web address “” I get nothing:

My web server starts no problem using apachectl start with no error
I do get a http://localhost
I don’t get http://myipaddress
My webserver is connected to the internet via dsl with no firewall
I am using when I send a request to it takes me to my ipaddress which is my webserver; but nothing shows up.

I think I’am missing something in my webmin configuration

When I create a new Virtual Server using webmin here is what I put in:
Address (set to “Any” / I leave blank)
Add name virtual server address (if needed)
Listen on address (if needed)
Port Default (set to “Any”)
Document Root /usr/www/http
Server Name (set to “”)
Add virtual server to file Standard httpd.conf file
Selected file..
Copy directives from

What else do I have to do to get it working? What am I missing?

I am new at this game!!

Thanks for your help

Does your server have a public ip or does the router have the public ip? if it was the router the you will need to forward the port to your server.
