There are a myriad of factors that could have caused those services to be inaccessible. First try to check if those services are running. Try
sockstat -4 [EMAIL PROTECTED]> sockstat -4 USER COMMAND PID FD PROTO LOCAL ADDRESS FOREIGN ADDRESS root httpd 504 30 tcp4 *:80 *:* root sshd 474 3 tcp4 *:22 *:* if you don't see that :80 and :22 entry at the "LOCAL ADDRESS" column those services might not be running. If they are not running and you are sure that you have already installed apache from the ports collection, check your /etc/rc.conf file if you have these entries: sshd_enable="YES" apache_enable="YES" If they are both running this could be a problem in the configuration of your firewall. Also check the /etc/hosts file if you have an entry for your localhost. Maybe you're computer cannot open those services because your computer couldn't resolve the ip address of your localhost :) If it is still not working. hmmm. try to verify if the firewall is really the one causing the problem. Add the following line in your /etc/rc.conf file firewall_enable="YES" firewall_type="OPEN" if it works. change the firewall type to something more secure.. customize the /etc/rc.firewall and set the firewall_type to which ever setting you think would fit your needs :) hope this helps :) ======================================= Gil A.
