Lets say that I have a windows 2000 Pro machine and I have the IP #
192.168.0.1 (not real address ) from my DSL that is setup in my
machine's TCP/IP properties.
I have no domain name.
I installed Apache HTTP server
version 2.0.55.0 using "localhost" as the server's name.
I setup the directives in the http.conf
from Listen 80 to Listen 192.168.0.1:80 and
from ServerName localhost:80 to ServerName 192.168.0.1:80
The DSL router's firewall is set to allow web server. My machine's
firewall is shut down.
I edited an index page into the htdocs folder.
I type in my browser's URL box "http://192.168.0.1/ and get a
"The connection has timed out" warning.

What settings have I missed?

Accessing with the machine the server is in, http://localhost/ will get me to the apache's "Seeing this instead of the website you expected?" page, but http://127.0.0.1/ will get me to my site homepage.

Who is your ISP?

Have you checked to see if they block port 80?

My ISP is SBC yahoo. I do not think it is with the ISP because I have another machine using OS X with Apache 1.3 and static IP and I can access the site on it.

Could it be some setting in the Windows "host" file since I can access my site on the Windows machine using 127.0.0.1?

First, I run in a similiar situation. I use:

ServerName localhost:80

rather than

ServerName 192.168.0.1:80

Actually, I see a couple of things that might be problematic. First, your Mac is running Apache 1.3, and most likely using Port 80: How does the router know how to distinguish between the two different Apache setups on two different PC's (Port Forwarding)? It seems to me that you would still have to use a different Port for each instance of Apache (for external access).

Next, it sounds like you have a DNS/routing issue rather than a Apache setup issue (the 'time out' in the error message - you probably receive quick too). So....Yes...if you are using a HOST file then make sure you define your 'dotted decimal' address to localhost. If you have a DNS Server running, then consult your DNS Server Info for proper configuration.

Also, make sure your DocumentRoot is pointing where you want it.
