Hi,

First, I have 2 XP Professional workstations connected to each other through a switcher running TCP-IP.  Machine 1 is setup 125.125.125.4 and Machine 2 is 125.125.125.6.


After installing Foxserv I have been able to connect to my running Apache service by using "http:/localhost" from Machine 1.  The problem is that I can not connect from Machine 2 to the Apache server, no matter what I try.  Can someone pleas help?

hi Tellis16,

Could you ping machine1 from machine2?

try to do http://125.125.125.6/ on machine2.

samri,

Not only can I ping 125.125.125.6, I can also telnet 125.125.125.6 80 and I get some garbage characters with the work Apache somewhere in the middle of it all.  This tells me that the Server is listening to port 80.  Why I can't connect from the browser on Machine two is puzzling......

samri,

I don't know if this helps... I decided to change the config file for Apache to listen only to 125.125.125.6:80 and the service would no longer start.  I then when into the error log to find the following: (995)Unknown error: winnt_accept: Asynchronous AcceptEx failed.

Hope that helps somewhat.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

First on machine 1, try:

1. Connecting to http://125.125.125.4

If so then you know that the server is listening on the external ip address.

2. If you remove the switch and connect the 2 systems together with a crossover cable (or through a 'plain' hub?)then I presume that the system works. If it does, then the problem is with your switch.

Do you get the same strange chars if you connect from system 1 by telneting to port 80?

In fact, I'm going to guess that you have some form of firewall running on the system, preventing external conenctions from functioning correctly to Port 80?

..and I presume that apache is running as a user with the appropriate permissions?

pjedmond,

Thanks for the response... I have since relocated and will need about 2 days to re-connect the two machines again.   I am looking forward to trying the above from your comments to perhaps solve my problem with Apache.



Thank You,
Terry E.

pjedmond,

I'm sorry I dropped the ball on this topic.   I'm not in the position now to continue trying to solve my Apache problems.

I do intend to give you the points for all of your help.

Thanks again,
Terry E.
