Apache on Vista help needed

I'm running EasyPHP on a Vista machine, pretty much the default apache configuration. But for some reason, other people in my network can't access my webserver. Also, I can only access it using localhost or, not using my ip address or computer name.

I tried pinging my computer name, and I get time-outs, and I also noticed it uses an IPv6 address. I don't know much about IPv6, but I do recognize it... I also don't know if this information is relevant.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks for your time!
