Apache on OS X only responding via local connection

Recommended Posts

Forgive me if this has been asked/answered before, I've Googled and searched through the forum archives and haven't found anything related to my problem.

I recently compiled Apache 2.0.59 on my mac ( OS X 10.4.8 ).  The compile was successful and functions just fine except for one problem - I can only access it via its .local address (geethree.local).  I works fine from that URL anywhere on my network, but if I try to access it any other way I get timeout errors (both internally on my network and friends on their connections). on the machine doesn't work but http://localhost does.  Neither its internal IP (192.168.x.x) nor its external IP respond.  A subdomain of my domain pointed to the IP address doesn't work.  The only way it can be reached is via geethree.local.

Its not a firewall issue - the built in OS X firewall is not turned on and port 80 is open and functioning on my router.

Its a pretty vanilla compile and I've even recompiled it into another location to make sure it wasn't just a fluke.

My configure options were ./configure --enabled-mods-shared=most --enable-ssl --with-mpm=worker --without-berkeley-db --enable-so --prefix=/Volumes/Dev/Webserv/httpd

The only changes I made to httpd.conf were changes to DocumentRoot and DirectoryIndex, otherwise its stock.

No PHP, MySQL, etc on this install.

I changed the LogLevel to debug and the output is below.

[Mon Oct 09 17:13:29 2006] [notice] Digest: generating secret for digest authentication ...
[Mon Oct 09 17:13:29 2006] [notice] Digest: done
[Mon Oct 09 17:13:29 2006] [notice] Apache/2.0.59 (Unix) DAV/2 configured -- resuming normal operations

[Mon Oct 09 17:13:29 2006] [debug] worker.c(1676): AcceptMutex: sysvsem (default: sysvsem)

I should also mention that adding virtual hosts for any subdomains, etc that I try to access the system from do not work so thats not the problem.

Thanks in advance for any help!
