Problems Connecting to Apache Server (Suspect problem with my IP setup)
Posted on 2003-03-13
Here is my setup: Running VMWare, have a RedHat 7.1 (2.4.2) installation running, server mode, just recently downloaded apache and installed it and such. I am pretty new to the linux enviro, but I think apache is all set up correctly. I can view the test page by using 'lynx localhost'. I set up eth0 for a static IP, the configuration file will be pasted below. It is set up like this because my firewall is portforwarding to this static IP, I dont know if it would have worked before I messed with the IP configuration, I didnt try it.
I read something about inetd I think it is? The daemon that handles all the connections and such. I tried looking to see if the conf file was where this tutorial said it was, but it didnt exist at all...
I can ping the address, I get a response, but strangely enough I can't telnet to port 80, or 8080 on the address.
Also, anybody know how I can get apache to autostart everytime the server restarts? I'm sure there must be some sort of script somewhere.
Thanks for any help... Jim
