Hi all,
I have recently installed Apache version 1.3.37 (from source with
openssl) on my home computer, but for some reason the server is not
accepting connections either from, or localhost, or ljp, or
local network addresses, or anywhere as far as I can establish. I
presume the Apache server is working OK and I would be grateful for any
help in adjusting the settings so that it will accept connections at
least from

Below are some of the commands I have tried which I hope give those who
know about Apache configuring some useful hints.

root at ljp:/home/mark# lsof -i tcp | grep httpd
httpd     19538   root   16u  IPv4 3602461       TCP *:www (LISTEN)
httpd     19539 nobody   16u  IPv4 3602461       TCP *:www (LISTEN)
httpd     19540 nobody   16u  IPv4 3602461       TCP *:www (LISTEN)
httpd     19541 nobody   16u  IPv4 3602461       TCP *:www (LISTEN)
httpd     19542 nobody   16u  IPv4 3602461       TCP *:www (LISTEN)
httpd     19543 nobody   16u  IPv4 3602461       TCP *:www (LISTEN)
root at ljp:/home/mark# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.

- --- ping statistics ---
8 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 7010ms

root at ljp:/home/mark# telnet localhost 80
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out

root at ljp:/usr/local/apache/bin# ./apachectl configtest
Syntax OK

Any help on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. I have tried to
alter some of the settings in httpd.conf file but with no success so far.
