Client is mac osx running VMware Fusion. Virtual machine is Fedora. Apache is configured and running. The actual site content is stored in a shared folder between the mac and the VM. In the mac terminal I can ping the domain name (which is configured to route back to the internal IP using the hosts file), and the IP directly, however cannot view the site in browser, nor get the standard apache "it works" page, but a time out. Tried from the mac terminal to telenet on port 80, time out again. Have checked firewall settings.
Any ideas or thoughts welcome.
If further clarification is needed I will provide as I can. I have to confess I currently am only learning this stuff so may have missed something seemingly obvious, but our server guys have looked over this and can't figure out the problem, althought haven't been able to have direct access to the mac but have accessed the virtual machine terminal via reverse ssh.
Thanks in advance
