I have a laptop with Fedora Linux, and Apache on it. I'm trying to access my web server from a winXP netbook, through a network cable( no switch or a router ). The netbook got 3g on it. I've used windows network setup wizard to allow Internet connection sharing. So the winXP netbook connects to the net through the 3g and Linux laptop has no problem connecting to the internet through the netbook. However, the netbook does not want to connect to the Linux Apache server. I've looked up IP addresses, I can ping Linux fine from the netbook, but if I type the IP into browser, I get nothing. Typing the same IP on the Linux browser brings up my Apache page. I've tryed to set up proxy in IE configuration. I've also tried to put the IP into apache's config file under the server name. I'm not too network savvy, so if anybody knows of anything else I might try, please let me know.
