I would make sure the firewall is disabled on the server with the webserver, if the website then becomes available, open whichever port the website is hosted on, probably 80 or 443.


is apache listening on your lan ip address ( or is it listening on the localhost ip address ( ). Check the config file ( httpd.conf )


Look at netstat -apn, and especially check that apache hasn't bound ipv6 only, as current distribution varieties of it are very liable to do that...
