Unhappy Apache... can't acces http remotely but https works


I've been stuck for one week now and I can't figure out what the problem is.
I have 2 web server in my office : http and https. You will find attached the httpd.conf and ssl.conf. I can acces the https server from home, but not the http one. I'm totaly lost please help.

What I did :
configure the router to forward port 80 to my fedora 11 machine
open port 80 with system-config-network
created a virtualhost

the same exact steps have been done for port 443
I can access both server locally but only the https server remotelly.

I don't how to help you to help me...
here are my iptables :
08h06 [root@tradesult:html]$ iptables -L | grep http
ACCEPT     tcp  --  anywhere             anywhere            state NEW tcp dpt:https
ACCEPT     tcp  --  anywhere             anywhere            state NEW tcp dpt:http
please any help would be greatly apreciated
you can try to acces my servers using
http://tradesult.serveftp.net/ or https://tradesult.serveftp.net/

edit: I made httpd to listen to port 8080, and done all the port forwarding/opening stuf, and it works. so is it a bug ?

edit 2 : Finally found my error seams like turning off UseCanonicalName to off did the trick

edit 3 : I really think it's a bug now. It was definitively working last week, I just added content to the main host of my website, and now i can't acces it from port 80. If someone think it's not a bug or find someting missing/wrong in my conf file please let me know

http://tradesult.serveftp.net/ => works
https://tradesult.serveftp.net/ => problem loading page

I can see no "include conf/ssl.conf" line in your httpd.conf try adding that or append your ssl directives to httpd.conf and restart.

Both your confs look ok by the way.

thanks your reply. In fact I configured http://tradesult.serveftp.net to point directely to port 8081, that's why you can access it now but can't with the secure connection. (I changed it with https://tradesult-secure.serveftp.net).
I made httpd to listen to port 8081 too, changed the virtualhost to listen to 8080 and the ssl.conf is loaded with the directive
include conf.d/*.conf
If I try the default http port 80, it still doesn't work. (try http://tradesult.servebbs.com, that's my secondary address).

maybe my ISP is blocking me ? that would be strange because it used to work before I put content in my /var/www/html directory
