comment Problem with HTTP traffic being 'hijacked' by firewall
Thanks for being my Rubber Duck! I think you probably contributed most, although the real answer is: "Rowan, you shouldn't be configuring a firewall, stick to the websites..."

comment Problem with HTTP traffic being 'hijacked' by firewall
Ballsy balls! OK, we have two firewalls running in parallel, the new one on 1.1.1.2 and the old one on 1.1.1.3. When we changed 1.1.1.9 to my machine's IP (1.1.1.199) it just worked! Then we realised that 1.1.1.9 is connected to the internetz via 1.1.1.3, but my machine's connected via 1.1.1.2, doh! moving my machine to use 1.1.1.3 causes the same hanging behaviour... I feel like such a noob!

Nope, we're only using WAN 1, WAN 2 has no cable plugged in and nothing configured for it. I can't plug dot-9 into that at the moment (Boss won't be happy - mail will go down), but I have a webserver running on my personal machine so we'll try plugging me (my machine, not me personally) directly into the firewall. Keep you updated, thanks so much!

OK, adding a DMZ WAN rule has exactly the same effect as adding a LAN WAN rule, the 123.123.123.102 just hangs

That had no effect I'm afraid :(

OK, I think I understand what that is now, but what will adding 1.1.1.2 to a DMZ zone do? Can you guess I'm not a real sysadmin? :)

Firmware is completely up-to-date, I'll try setting remote management with a bogus IP temporarily

Excuse my ignorance, but what would the DMZ thing do? I'm not 100% sure what you mean, sorry!

Remote management is off, and the port setting is 8080 currently - here's a screenshot of the Administration/Remote Managment page: img638.imageshack.us/img638/9590/screenshot20110415at103.png

Hi, thanks for the answer but remote management is completely off.

comment Problem with HTTP traffic being 'hijacked' by firewall
Yep, that's plugged into WAN1 so not a problem

Point one may be the issue, point two I've already tried - remote management is completely disabled! As you may have guessed, I'm not really a 'server admin', I've been tasked with this because 'web developer' is the closest we've got... Could you explain point one a little more? I'm not 100% sure how I'd actually go about checking/solving that.. Thanks :)

I do have a NameVirtualHost * in my config @Marcin, see comments on @Jari's answer below for more details

comment Mac's Apache virtual hosts playing up
Thanks for those (I didn't know the DUMP_VHOSTS bit - really useful) but still not working! Banging my head against the desk here... The annoying thing is that example.com and even testing.example.com work fine, but dev.example.com doesn't. I don't even understand how that's possible! There are no other virtual host configs that reference the example.com domain

Thanks Jari, I didn't mention but I have tried points 1–3 without any luck. My default virtual host is like this: <VirtualHost *> DocumentRoot "/Volumes/Websites/Personal/Rowan Manning" </VirtualHost>

I just did, but there's nothing there to indicate a problem. The access log just shows requests to / and /favicon.ico and the error log contains nothing related to this (just some PHP errors and missing favicons etc.)
