    Well, what does your network look like, exactly?

    your server cannot be reached from outside, does this mean that you can go to http://localhost:80 from your browser??
    have you forwarded port 80 on your router to your machine?

    My site can be reached from the other pc in my network, I can even do some administrative work from it. I have bought myself a modem so that I can test the server. I have the NAT tool configured. But it is just not working. I have tried dns2go utility, but it is still not working. I am going to try www.dyndns.org. Thanks for the advice from the administrator of this site.

    Maybe I am gloomy, but when you can't get sth to work, this is very frustrated! I have been trying this for at least a month now, and I am going to keep trying and trying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




    By the way, thanks a lot for your kind response, man, I must say that getting a reply is a relief when i am desperate.

    Can you describe the physical setup of your network (ie. hubs, routers, computers, modems, etc)? Do you even have a router? And in that case, is it one of those hardware routers, or is it a Linux router?

    it is a hardware router, two pcs connected to it, with NAT configured, firewall disabled for testing, all firewalls on my linux system is disabled or configured to accept httpd traffics, still no signs of getting it up.

    Oh, those hardware routers can be a real test of your patience. Are you completely sure that you have forwarded port 80 correctly? It's not enough to only turn off the firewall.
    Check with ethereal or tcpdump on the apache server to see if any SYN packets get there.
