Can't view pages

I've got apache installed on my Win2K server and I can't view even the default page from Netscape or IE4 when I type in the domain name of the server or its static IP address. The only way I can view to pages is to use either "localhost" or the IP address 127.0.0.1

In having said that the httpd.conf file has been setup to listen to port 80 and port 443, and I can ping the server with its domain name and IP address, the IP addess has been mapped to the domain name within the DNS server.

What error messages does appears on your Netscape (forget IE, the error messages would be as good as no error).

Did you configure you IE/Netscape to use proxy server, or do you have any devices on your network that does "transparent" proxy, ie, picks up anything going to 80/443, and forward to to some proxy server (wingate client does this, and I bet there would be other that will..).

Another test is to try to do  a "telnet your-server-ip 80", type in something, and hit enter twice.  Feedback the response here.

cheers.
