In the building I have a router plugged into a switch, five computers plugged into the switch sharing internet. The IP address for the router is 192.168.1.1, and I can access its control panel from any computer on the network.
I have a Linux server running Fedora Core 9 with Apache installed and the httpd service running. What I want to do is be able to use this server as a testing server for a website that will be developed locally on another computer on the network.
The Linux's address is 192.168.1.109
I can access the Apache test page from Linux by typing http://localhost/
I can ping 192.168.1.109 from the other Windows computers on the network just fine, so it's seeing the Linux computer
I can SSH into email@example.com with Putty just fine from other computers on the network
The only problem, it seems, is that none of the other computers on the network can type http://192.168.1.109/
into their browser address bar and get the Apache test page. It just says "Unable to connect" in Firefox.
I went into the router's configuration and it looks like this:
Port Range Forwarding
Start End Protocol To IP Address
HTTP 80 80 Both 192.168.1.109
I think that should be set up right, but I'm not sure.
Any suggestions? It's probably a silly fix somewhere but I've never done this kind of setup before.
