403 Error on local network /htdocs access attempts on win XP running xampp

Hello All,

I spent the most part of last night (from 9pm - 5am) trying to resolve this issue, and I'm giving in now. I will list everything I attempted and what IS working now.

The problem is connecting to my apache server via my other networked pcs.

Here the data:

Server Computer
---------------------------------
-- apache 2.2
-- win xp SP 3
-- apache, localhost, port 80 and 443 exceptions in firewall
-- port 80 allowing ip address on network pc


Networked pc
---------------------------------
-- can see Access Forbidden 403 page when I attempt to connect to the server
-- Can ping server IP - Success


The bottom line is I can connect to the server, but I just can't seem to gain access to view the index.html of the htdocs dir from my networked pc???? This is what is making me MAD!

Please any suggestions or tips SOS

Well!

Guess what. When I go to ask the teacher, I get the answer???? I figured it out...

For anyone who is suffering from this issue.

KNOW YOUR httpd.conf WELL!!

I accidentally had

<Directory "C:/server/root">

    Deny from all
    Allow from 127.0.0.1
    Allow from 192.0

</Directory>

NOTE THE 192.0 -- this was not allowing 192.168. (prefix for all my local network pcs)

So I updated it to:

Allow from 192.168.3

Viola!
