Apache 2.2.8 Ubuntu not accepting connections from outside LAN
Okay - I apologise if this is someone already has an answer for this someplace in here. Kind of under the gun - I want to make sure that I am not on a 'Wild Goose Chase'
I have an Apache 2.2.8 server running on an Ubuntu (Debian 4.3.2-1 kernel 188.8.131.52) . It only will accept connections from the localhost. I run Firefox in an X window on the server, I can get to it just fine. However, I attempt to connect from an external IP, and I cannot.
I run a sniffer on my local machine here, and it seems to want to connect (if anyone wants me to post the trace I will) and when I run a sniffer on the remote machine (the one where the web server is), it is getting an http request to the machine.
I checked the iptables - nothing blocked.:confused:
I have verbose (debug logging) turned on. I don't see anything.:(
I am thinking one of two things:
1. it (apache) is configured to not accept external connections - and I do not know how to check this.
2. the hosting provider has it blocked somehow that I cannot see.
To add mystery I have Tomcat running on the same server (tcp port 8080) and I can reach it just fine.
Any helpful words of wisdom from anyone?
Thanks - it would be much appreciated! :):)
