Not able to access http service


Hi,
Our client who is in US had installed RH9.0 on one box.....So we are given root permission to access that system from our company and install our network monitoring software....
He enabled port 80 and 443 on his firewall for this particular system...
We are able to access that sys thro' ssh(443) also installed and configured our tool on that system but we are not able to get anything on browser when i give that particular m/c IP address on my browser http......getting request timed out....
meanwhile we checked all the services on that system and httpd service is running fine...
even checked in /etc/services....
Should be stop iptables or that kinda stuff.....the guy on client side says there is no problem from his end ......
Please help as we gotta meet some important deadlines........
bye.....
