Hi all,

I got a problem on Apache,and hope somebody can help me (sorry for my English) :

my box is running kernel 2.4.19,with iptables and advanced router compiled;and Apache is 2.0.40 - the latest version.

my box has three network devices:

eth0 - connected to my LAN,using IP address 192.168.0.XXX
eth1 - connedted to ADSL modem
ppp0 - after ADSL connection is established

after Apache starts,there is no problem while visit http service right on the linux box,whether use

     lynx localhost
     lynx      #the IP binded with eth0
     lynx <the IP binded with ppp0,and it's a valid internet address>

it's all ok.

but when I try to access the http service from other PCs on the LAN (connected with the linux box via eth0),nothing happens in the browser.

I doubt it's caused by iptables,but even when I set INPUT ACCEPT and OUT ACCEPT on all devices,problem insists ...

Who can help me?

Thank you.
