    Is this a Linux server and no other computers can see it?

    If so have you set up SAMBA for file shareing etc

    can the comps ping each other?

    If hes using port 80, that probably means that its a webserver, not a fileserver. Ok, try the command ps aux to make sure the process is running, then try accessing your index.html page via a local browser, should that be working, then it is not an issue of your server, most likely its a problem with port forwarding. or DNS resolution, try the straight IP and see how that goes, if you really want, open your apache config file and look for the variable 'hostname' or something of the like, and set it to the full name that the server should respond too.
