View Full Version : Web server not seen from LAN

05-18-2011, 08:41 PM
Hi. I'm trying to build a home server using Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, Apache 2.2, PHP 5.2, MySQL 5.5. The server works fine localy. The problem is accessing it externaly (from LAN / Internet). I can't get my other computer (both connected through a router) to "see" the server. The problem isn't with the router (I had to reinstall the Windows to solve some problems ...the first time I was using IIS and I could see the site from LAN/Internet and I didn't change any settings in the router) or the firewall (I have disabled both PC's firewalls for testing purposes). So I'm guessing it might be an Apache setting problem, but I can't figure out what (I created a virtual server for the site using localhost as the domain name as I have read that this might be a cause, but no luck). Any idea what the problem might be and how to solve it? Thank you in advance. Bye.
PS: I don't know if this helps, but I can't even ping one PC from the other.
