hi guys. i'm new to Apache, and was having a problem getting it up and running. what i found out was, it's running, and others can get to it from the internet, but i can't. i can get to it by putting in my browser, but not by putting in the URL. i did a ping on the URL, and it came back good. did a tracerout, showed it only to my internet IP, 1 hop. seems it's not going out. is this normal? and is there any way i can get it to show up on my computer, and others on my home network, by typing in the URL? by the way, i'm using the www.no-ip.com website to get a subdomain name. any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've used the DDNS at no-ip.com without problems.

It sounds like a local DNS or IP settings issue to be honest. The reason I say this is because you can hit the localhost as demonstrated by your ability to hit (a.k.a. - localhost). This shows that Apache is doing it's job (i.e. - it's serving web pages).

There are a couple of things you can look at in the CONF file. Examine the following Directives: ServerName, VirtualHost, and Listen (I doubt Listen is an issue, but check it out anyway). Check the manual, and make adjustments as necessary, regarding these directives. Other than that, it's not really an Apache issue. Again, this sounds related to your local IP settings and services.

Who ever is serving up your DNS could be an issue as well. I have a good ISP, with resonably good DNS servers. However, I rely on my own DNS server that utilizes cache forwarding as well as the ROOT Nameservers.

The 'one hop drop' you describe is normal, but again is determined via your DNS and routing. Routing usually is determined by the shortest path to destination.
