    Win 7 Pro STOPS Access to the Apache Server on it ?


    Enviro (essential parts):

    A new Win7 Pro machine acting as a web server. Loaded with Apache 2.2. This 'server' is located behind a router and is also on a local network with one other Win 7 Prp machine, and with two Win XP machines. One of the XP machines acts a the prime server (for now). The other XP macine is my development machine

    I have NO firewall active on any of my machines.


    When I first hooked up my new Win7 pro machine a couple of weeks ago, it 'served' my pages properly. Then I noted that I couldn't 'push' files to this server machine from my XP development machine.

    Ultimately, as of yesterday with a lot of changes to 'Network and Sharing' and use of netplwiz.exe, I can now push/pull files between my XP and Win 7 machines with no problem

    New Problem:

    But *now*, I can't visit my web site on this new server (where I could do so about a week ago without problems).

    This next entry on the Firefox address bar works correctly and shows the first page of my site quickly and properly: Microsoft Internet Information Services 8 (where 4297 is the port where my router directs this web site). The access.log show the access was granted

    This next entry I triedsomehow fails to get by my Win 7 machine's security: Website Hosting - and there is no entry in the access.log file on Apache that there was even an attempt --- absolutely empty


    What must I do to the security or sharing on the Win 7 Pro machine to allow web site access to my server there ??

    Thank you.

    Somehow, my 'examples' were changed !

    What I wanted to say was that the access was perfect, but the actual web address not allowed to be serviced by Apache.
