    [SOLVED]Host not found, please help


    Ok, I tried Search. There's one thread similar to this but I'm not sure if the prolem was solved. In my case, I can open the default page in the server by http://localhost/ but I get the error Host not found if I access from another PC running WinXP. I'm just in a LAN by the way. The two PC's, web server (RH Linux Enterprise ES 2.1) and client are in front of me. I can actually ping from both PC's but using IP address only.

    Try running:
    Code:
    netstat -nal
    on your Linux -server machine. This will display your open ports, check if port 80 is open and that your webserver is using that protocol.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I could see this

    Code:
    Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address         Foreign Address        State
    tcp             0          0  0.0.0.0:1024          0.0.0.0:*         LISTEN
    tcp             0          0  127.0.0.1:1025       0.0.0.0:*        LISTEN
    tcp             0          0  0.0.0.0:111          0.0.0.0:*          LISTEN
    tcp             0          0  0.0.0.0:6000          0.0.0.0:*        LISTEN
    tcp             0          0  0.0.0.0:80          0.0.0.0:*            LISTEN
    tcp             0          0  0.0.0.0:22          0.0.0.0:*            LISTEN
    tcp             0          0  127.0.0.1:25          0.0.0.0:*         LISTEN
    udp            0          0  0.0.0.0:1024          0.0.0.0:*                  
    udp            0          0  0.0.0.0:111          0.0.0.0:*
    I see 0.0.0.0:80 alright but I don't know if this means its open or closed. [/code]
