I have a router with 2 computers on the localside connected to a router with an external ip and forwarding set for ports 80, and 23. On my FC6 box I have apache running and everything looks good when I go to http://localhost from that machine. However,
When I go over to my other computer and type in the local IP add for my FC6 I get a 404 error. I can ping it but I can't reach it via firefox or telnet.
I've looked in the httpd logs but I don't see anything. Where would the firewall log denied connections to?
It could be an iptables firewall issue. The default FC installation activates it, and also by default, iptables allows all traffic to/from localhost.
- You can use the simple interface provided by the "system-config-securitylevel-tui" or "system-config-securitylevel" commands to do some basic modifications.
- You could also try deactivating iptables temporarily to see if it works.
