My firewall (pmfirewall) is allowing access to port 80, and I have
apache running. I can connect from within the internal net, like
http://localhost will display my web page. But
will hang, until my browser gives up. I have the second NIC, the one
connected to the cable modem, configured for DHCP and it gets the address at boot time via DHCP. I thought of changing the
IP address to, but then it will not access the
internet. Any more suggestions?

Thank you for replying.
