Apache web server not serving pages

I am running Apache HTTP Server 2.0.55 as a development server on my windows 2000 pc.  The server, until recently, had been working fine for months.  I am now running into a problem where it will not serve web pages.  When I try to type in an address, the following error message comes up:

"The page cannot be displayed - The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings. "

The same thing happened a few days ago.  I rebooted and it was fine.  Rebooting does not seem to take care of it this time.  The error log does not indicate any problems and the web server seems to close and restart just fine.  

Do you have any idea what might be causing this?  Thanks.

Pete

Is Apache up and running?  It is listening on port 80?

     netstat -ano | find ":80 "

look at the PID and then verify that this is the PID of Apache.  If you have configured Apache to listen on a different port, then replace ":80 " with whatever port you have it configured to to listen on.

at the risk of sounding completely ignorant (which is actually the case with respect to such things), do I type what you have suggested into the command prompt or someplace else?  thanks

That was the next step.  Checking firewall configuration.  Gald to see you found it.
