I have two computers on my home intranet as below:

Computer A: Apache Server on Fedora 7 as 192.168.1.100 (david)
Computer B: Windows XP Client as 192.168.1.101 (alice)

I have edited the hosts file on both computer so pinging both by IP or name to each other works fine. I don't have any network problem because I can also access Windows PC using the Fedora PC.

I also don't have any problem accessing the web page from Fedora's http://localhost using the browser. But the funny thing is that I can't access the web page from the Windows XP's browser using http://david or http://192.168.1.100

I didn't change any default httpd.conf in Apache, so it listens to the port: 80 and everything works fine from the same computer. Any clues?
