Subject Re: [users@httpd] Cannot access my first web app(partially resolved)
Date Sat, 03 Apr 2010 17:35:35 GMT
Finally I could access my web app from another machine in my local network.
This is what I did:

In my apache configuration file, I changed the following line,

Before    ====>  Listen 8080

After      ====>  Listen

and now I can access my we app by typing,

But I would like to access my app using the servername directive, I mean using something like,

and it just doesn't work.
Within my apache configuration file the ServerName directive is set to ''
What am I doing wrong?????
Thanks for your help.

I have my first web app; it was developed in Perl with MySQL and using 
Apache 2.2 as the  Web Server.

I am working in Windows, both XP SP2 and in Vista Home.

When I access my web app in my Server, I need to type only,


and it works just great!.

But when I try to access from another machine in my intranet, not my 
Server, then I type,


where 'rafael' is the name of the Server.

And nothing happens, the client machine tries for a good time and gives 
up.(Connection reset by peer)

Am I missing something in my apache configuration file?????

Or I did something wrong.

Any idea is welcome.
