Sounds like you don't have an http server running on the machine.
Sorry I wasn't more clear. Apache2's running and afaik working well excepting this issue.
If you do, then maybe a local firewall is getting in the way.
ipfw isn't running. What are the other possibilities?
Do you try http://127.0.0.1/ or http://localhost/ ? In the second case, you may have an IPv6 problem.
Have tried both. I'm speculating that my local dns isn't working at all, and http://swamisalami works because it's also defined on the hosts file of the xp box on my lan which happens to have the dial up connection and so acts as the funnel for dns lookup via my isp. As you can see am very new to this and trying to understand how my own set up is actually working.
