Are both of these sites being served by a computer on your network? Are 
they both served from the same connection? What IP address do you see if 
you go to ?

That suggests that your program is not with a firewall on your computer. 
I don't think the issue is with your Apache configuration. I think that 
it is your network configuration. Have you set up port forwarding on 
your router yet? Have you ever been able to access your Apache server 
from outside your network?

I was talking about your computer, the one that Apache is running on.
