Forum OpenACS Q&A: Webserver problem on redhat7.2
i'm doing a by the book install of oacs4-5 on a redhat 7.2 system.
i've installed it and have been working on it successfully on a
similar system. the setup seems fine and i can connect to the
aolserver and acs by #lynx localhost. but i cant connect to it
remotely (or locally for that matter) by using the ipaddress (lynx
ive been looking at my network settings and things seem fine. ive
even installed apache and got that working w/out problems. logs dont
show any errors (as i said, i can reach oacs by "#lynx localhost")
any help would be appreciated. thanks.
One that also threw me was the firewall setup in RH7.2 (which set a FW up even though I selected not to run one). The lokkit app also doesn't seem to properly change the FW settings (make a change, exit and then go back in and the settings are the same as they were before the prior change).
everything by default. ipchains or iptables will block incoming TCP on port 80.
Look in /etc/sysconfig/ipchains and add an entry
for whatever port and address you are using for your web server.

anyway, this works for now. thanks.
