Problems Accesing Content on Apache

i just finished installing Apache, php4, mysql and openssl on a slack 10 box. when i open mozilla and go to link http://localhost/index.php , it opens the page alright, but when i use another computer on the network and use http://ip_addr/index.php, it tells me that the connection was refused.... what am i doing wrong ? i've been scratching my head for ages now. any help would be gladly appreciated.

Do you run any iptables script ?
Also it may be a setting in /etc/apache/httpd.conf that deny access or an .htaccess file in the directory that contains index.php. Did you look at your error log file ?

try : tail -f /var/log/apache/error_log , and try to access to the web server with the other machine, then look in the log.

If your index.php is in /home/www/ directory for example , try add to httpd.conf (if there are no directive for /home/www) :
<Directory "/home/www">
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Great, it is fixed But it is weird that it does not listen the port 80, what have you for Listen directive in httpd.conf ?
