Hi,
   i have just started using the apache 1.3 and i am new into web servers. I installed the apache 1.3. What i want is through a local lan to set a web server (apache) and through the other PCs to access the html page at the root directory of the apache program. So far the lan works fine the TCP/IP protocols on each PC are established but i can not see the web server. I already gave into the settings of the apache a CORRESPONDING ADDRESS. Do i have to change anything into the DNS properties (i have them deactivated)

What is the OS make/version running the Apache webserver?

On the server itself, could you browse the default webpage, ie. http://127.0.0.1/

And could you test from the remote pc on the Lan.  Try http://1.2.3.4/ where 1.2.3.4 is the IP address of the machine running Apache.  

Once everything is OK, you would need to add a DNS entry for the apache box.
