Unable to see apache2's web site from outside firewall-although from within its there. Yet forwarding appears ok..

>>> I have installed Mandrake Linux 10.1 including Apache2 .. My problem is that > From another machine on the same Local network I can bring up apache's default page browsing to its ip... Good - its working.
After configuring forwarding and NAT on that networks Firewall (Netmax5-serving several servers including new Apache server)from the outside world. I can not get to apache when using its assigned external ip address .. This should work..
To test if the forwarding is actually working >If I assign another machine (pc-IIS) the apache's internal i/p and swap their network cables-- It works.. I can open IIS web pages from outside. I am not the brightest but I have done this before on linux 9-9.2 with no real difficulty so what is wrong . I have rebuilt the whole thing twice now with no luck.
There are no traces of anything in httpd access or error logs. you can browse the world from the apache machines web client. No firewall is on on the Apache2 Linux machine - its security level currently set to poor.. I can ping apache's external i/p. I can ping from the firewall machine to the apache's internal i/p..
Any help much appreciated.
