LAMP on a local network

Threaded View


I'm new to all this and I am trying to set up a web sever over a local
network. I currently have two boxes attached via a switch. Box 1 is
configured with windowsXP and the other with Fedora3.

The linux box has Apache installed and appears to be running ok. When I use
IE to access the site I get the response : "Page cannot be displayed" or
"The web page you requested is not available offline" depending what is
entered in the address control.

On the Linux box, if I use the command netstat -atn, this shows a host listening on port 80

In the terminal window on the XP box, ( when I ping I get a successful response. If I telnet 80  I
get "could not open connection to the host on port 80:connect failed"

Does anybody have any suggestions /commands that will help me resolve this.

Also does anyone have a link to a good article recommending a development
set-up that includes the physical configuration as well as development tools
for a first timer.

Not a PHP question.

If it's listening but you can't connect then probably the connections are
being dropped by the firewall. Try running a web browser on the FC3 box
(IIRC RH comes with links as standard which will run in a terminal

Alternatively, you could try (as root):
        iptables -F
this will remove all the rules from the firewall.

Obviousl;y you'll want to have a working firewall but this should allow you
to confirm where the problem is.
