trying to rotate this triangle so that i can tell its 3d

hmmm this is got me stumped. as far as i know this is right (obviously not tho) i cant seem to get the viewport or camera to shift back and the shape to rotate. Anyone care to shed any light on this problem?

Hi,

  I know this is an older post but if you haven't figured this out by now, try moving the glRotatef and glTranslatef before the glBegin() statement. I think that will take care of the rotation problem.
