Trying to setup a web server

  1. I'm trying to setup a home web server using a D-Link router and a linux apache web server.

    I succesfully set up the apache server and if I connect to the IP address I assigned that computer, I can see the test page for the server.

    I set up a virtual web server on port 80 pointing to the IP address for the server but when anyone tries to view it it times out.

    Any suggestions as to what isn't working or what I should look into?

    I'm not sure if this explains what I'm about to say:
    But here goes anyway. Did you set up your port forwarding on your router to redirect traffic on port 80 to your internal IP address for the webserver?

    Thats what the virtual server is supposed to do in a D-link server, I'm wondering if I have a problem with my linux firewall settings...

    It was the linux firewall, my webserver now works
