Cant acess website from antoher computer...
Hello all. Ive finally got my server running, but when I went to test out my configuration on another computer at my house (using the same internet connection), nothing came up. Usually i get a Page Not Found error or a Server Not Found error. When i go onto my server, and try to acess my website, it works perfectly. At my school one after noon I tried it as well, and it worked great again. So my problem is that I cant acess my website from another computer using the same internet connection as my server. Is this normal, or is there a way that I can do this? Any help is greatly apreciated.

well, on some routers you will not be able to see the site from another computer on the router if you enter your domain name, that is why the above poster suggested using your local ip of the server, eg 192.168.0.3, or whatever your router has assigned to the server.Operating System: GNU Emacs

Thanks for the reply. I have tried both, the domian name (http://byroman.homelinux.org) and the ip adress of the server, but neither on them work on any of my other computers. If there some sort of function that I should enable on my router to allow this?

using the local ip (10.... 192..... 172.....) should work unless the ip apache is set to listen on is set to your WAN ip address. you should try
so that apache listens on any ip that comes its way on port 80.
but make sure you are using private ips in the first step above
