I have apache2.0.63 running on a vista machine and the internet website has been up and running.
In the last couple of weeks, I want to duplicate the website in another machine as a backup machine. I loaded apache2.2.14 in a XP machine. I think I turned off the window firewall(read more later). The localhost can see the index.html webpage. internalIPaddress:80 can see the webpage, even I use another machine with internalIPaddress:80 can see the webpage.
Then I went to my internet router and changed the internal IP address to point to the new machine from nnn.nnn.nnn.103 to nnn.nnn.nnn.104 . The website cannot be found from internet. But I can see the website when the internal IP address is pointing to the vista machine(nnn.nnn.nnn.103).
Vista window firewall can be turned off completely easily, easy to understand.
The XP window firewall can be turned off for "1394 conenction" and "Local Area connection". I have no ADVANCE tab for the "internet Gateway" to turn on/off the firewall there. I suspect the firewall is still ON.
Any idea or suggestion for me to try is appreciated.
