View Full Version : Web Server Issue
24th July 2004, 04:11 AM
I am running Apache and can successfully start Apache. I have my httpd.conf file set to have the server IP as the listener, such as, 192.168.0.5:80. I can hit the web server from within the web server. On that server itself, I am able to do http://192.168.0.5/ and I get the Apache page that says it's running, blah blah blah. I know Apache is running or I wouldn't get this page. Here's the problem: When I get on my Windows machine within my same internal network and try to access that server through the browser, it times out and can't find the server. I have also tried Telnet 192.168.0.5 80 and it cannot establish a connection. I know it has to be the way the server is configured, but I can't seem to set anything on the server that corrects the problem.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

if there a firewall working?

The only firewall I have is my router firewall. That shouldn't be the problem b/c I am trying to connect inside my firewall. All my machines are on this router so they should be communicating inside the firewall.

I mean on the fedora machine itself.

Oh...I had a feeling that's what you meant. I just recently installed Fedora on this machine so I haven't initiated a firewall. I have not manually started a firewall. Is there a way to check to see if a firewall is running on that machine?

I must admit, that I don't know iptables very well, but iptables -L should show the current rules (see: http://www.linuxguruz.com/iptables/howto/iptables-HOWTO-6.html#ss6.2 )

I cannot run iptables. When I try that command it says it can't be found. I tried to yum iptables, but it came back with no packages for it.

you have it.... You need to be 'root' to run it, otherwise /sbin/iptables
Anyways, if you have X installed.... You can just click on System Settings --> security level and open port 80

Thanks! That worked and I looked for the security settings and overlooked the Security Level option in the menus. Thanks again! Wish me luck as I get more involved with this stuff.
