Hi
I have a subnet 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0. My Apache 2 webserver is on 192.168.0.119. I have another host on .111. I can browse from .119 (localhost) fine, but when I try to access the web pages from .111, I get an error "unable to connect" (in firefox). I can ping the machine, connect to it with SSH etc. I set the permissions on the DocumentRoot  dir and files in it to 755. Any ideas?

Thanks

It seems that you have your Firewall active and blocking your HTTP connections.

juet edit your /etc/sysconfig/iptables

and add this line :
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

after

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT


Save aned exit. Issue this command:

service iptables restart

Well done. That was it. Just one thing: I changed your line to:
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
to look the other lines in the iptables file (It didn't restart iptables with your syntax.)

Ok. It seems that Fedora is using INPUT instead of RH-Firewall-1-INPUT. It is RHEL default. You're welcome.
