okay. i think this is probably simpler than it looks to everyone. As a sidenote, I just setup my humble server with very little to-do. (web server and misc other services, mysql, tomcat, openssh).
First thing to note here: Some ISP's block port 80 for web serving, but really not too much anymore. However in my case, i locked down my DSL router's firewall soo tight, that it blocked my server unless I opened a DMZ to the server. off-hand, i use AT&T Uverse DSL.
So, if you use AT&T - log into your DSL router's config page (usually the IP is the one listed for "default gateway"). Go into the firewall advanced settings and open a DMZ to your server. If your server works now, then you have the "outbound firewall" settings too tight. You can keep a DMZ, or you can open a single port and uncheck security settings until your server works again.
That was my problem, which was "I can't get a connection from an outside computer."
The 192.168.x.x number is the local IP address for a "non-internet" network. You have to "go outside" this network by way of your router to get a "Internet IP" which your router probably has. Your router actually has the internet IP, and you forward ports or the entire IP range (DMZ) to your server. In the DMZ case, your server actually gets some random Internet IP number besides 192.x.x.x which... cuts off the ability to share locally, openly (like Windows XP - share folder to local network - easy), and securely from your server.
Beyond that, there are endless things to check. Your computer could have a software firewall, but Ubuntu server does not have it on as default. When you get things setup, you want to turn it on. I had to make NO CHANGES to my ubuntu-server software firewall to get my server up and on the internet.
If you run your server through a wireless router (different than the DSL/Cable router)... it, too, can have a firewall, and you could also be sub-netting inside a subnet (off-hand, subnetting may not matter to this problem).
okay, i'm out for the day.
These forums have been very helpful in the past...so hear goes my first request...
*Running Koala Deskop
drupal directory is /opt..../htdocs/drupal
Am successful when opening browser and going to localhost -> drupal pops up.
Trying to be able to go to localhost/fileserver and get a apache index listing of all folders.
I have a second automatically mounted NTFS hard drive that I use for fileserver
I've modified vhosts & /etc/hosts file
I've allowed in .conf files to read in httpd-vhosts.conf
I've created a symbolic link from /media/fileshare to /opt/.../htdocs/drupal
they only thing i can think of is that I am logged in as a user who does not have ownership of /media/fileserver but have r+w access.
....please don't bump...
