comment No outbound connections for apache2
thank you; this helped me debug the problem. actually, it turned out that a firewall on my client machine was blocking connections to the server. I opened another client machine (actually to use tcpdump, since I couldn't figure out how to do it on windows, which was the original client) and realized that everything seemed to work. :O grepping for listen helped verify that there was only one listen command (so no conflicts) and that it was enabled, and tcpdump (I had to specify an interface, in this case eth1) was useful for verifying connections on the 'good' client

no firewall. as for ping/traceroute, I can indeed ping the server, and traceroute gives a couple of hops before getting to the server... what should I be inferring from this information, aside from the fact that ping seems to work? as for the apache config, see my edited question. it's allow from all as far as I can tell.

I don't think there is a firewall. I didn't install one, and ubuntu seems to have ufw disabled by default. I tried disabling it for sure (sudo ufw disable) and retrying, and it still fails.
