192.168.1.255 doesn't look right. in your server, run ifconfig and determine
the IP from *that* information.
For example, on my laptop:
[EMAIL PROTECTED] [Tue Feb 20 10:29:47 2007]

$ ifconfig
bge0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        options=1b<RXCSUM,TXCSUM,VLAN_MTU,VLAN_HWTAGGING>
        inet 192.168.2.129 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.2.255
        ether 00:16:36:29:e1:36
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
        status: active

the IP assigned to my network card (bge0) is 192.168.2.129 , with a netmask of
255.255.255.0 (0xffffff00 ), and a broadcast of 192.168.2.255.

The only thing you need to access your server from your workstation, if they
are in the same LAN (and subnet...;) ) is the IP address.

since you are bothering with nmap...why dont you just scan all your IP space
(as in your LAN's IP subnet) and move on? :) 

btw, you DO have apache running on your server, right?
