Do you have any logs for destination port 80?

Can you find any entries for IP address in your 
firewall or Apache logs? I just tried to connect to 
from that IP, so if the connection attempt ever reached your machine, 
it should show in at least one of your logs.

I don't know Norton at all, but in all firewalls I've ever seen, 
that's simply not how it's done. One rule is never for both incoming 
*and* outgoing traffic. I'd be a little bit surprised if Symantec's 
firewall is that different in this regard.

Are you sure that you haven't simply permitted outgoing connections 
with destination or originating port 80?

The symptoms really does make it look like a firewall or router
