Apache Problems

umm dont really know witch forum to put this under...but here goes
i used the red hat apache config tool to try and get the server set up, i can get to a stage where i type localhost into my browser and it shows me the index.html file, but when i try to access it from another computer (using the ip address), it says page cannot be found.
i have tried disabling my firewall but to no avail. was there some packages or options i had to install or select when i installed the o/s.

EDIT: well i dont acutally get to the stage of getting the index.htm page, i get the "your apache web server has been set up correctly... page" i can type /index.htm onto the address and get it and if i put it into the "error" folder and rename it to noindex.html it works fine

If your server is connected to a router, make sure you forward port 80 to your server. And if it still doesn't work, you are unlucky, your ISP might block port 80, in that case you have no choice but to host your server on a different port.
