Are you running a firewall on your Linux server? If so you may want to check it. You can either poke a hole for port 80 (the default for http) or just turn it off for now.
I'm doing Apache development on a local Linux server and have networked it to my Win ME PC. I just want the two to communicate over my intranet now for testing & development.
I have DNS working, appearently. I can telnet from Win to linux and ftp between the two using my domain name for the Linux server like "www.my-dom.com". I can ping my Linux box with that name from the Win PC as well. However I still can't use a url like "www.my-dom.com/examples/" from my web browser.
It can't seem to resolve the dns name that I have running on my Linux box. So it goes out on the www looking for other dns server which of course return DNS error, since I haven't set up an Internet domain yet. What more do I need to setup to be able to do this for my Intranet only access?
Curiously http://IPADDRESS doesn't work on either machine but http://LOOPBACK (127.0.0.1) and http://localhost/DIR works on the server side.
