I'm going to use Firefox as an example, because its open source and easy to find the information for, but this applies (probably with slightly different lists of ports) to other browsers, too. In August 2001, CERT issued a vulnerability note about how a web browser could be used to send near-arbitrary data to TCP ports chosen by an attacker, on any ...

apache restarts just fine but on the web it does not work. Port 80 is the default HTTP port for browsers as well as servers. This means in order to access a server that's operating on a non-standard port from a browser, you need to include the port in the address, e.g.: http://localhost:79/rest/of/url Without the :79 after the hostname, the browser ...

I am writing my comment as an answer since it seems to be relevant to your case. Keyword: logs. You can find logs for Apache2 at: /var/log/apache2. They may be in different locations according to your distribution, but this one is the most common. Have a look at error and access logs to identify your requests. You can use grep to search your logs for 404 ...

Use the DirectoryIndex directive: The DirectoryIndex directive sets the list of resources to look for, when the client requests an index of the directory by specifying a / at the end of the directory name.

You can run any service on any port (modulo privileges). That HTTP is on port 80 is pure convention, there's no technical reason to do this. So yes, you could run HTTP on port 1 (unless it is being used by another program). If it didn't work for you, then either you still need to fix the server configuration (check what netstat -ntl says), or, as goldilocks ...

On the box you are using to try to reach the web page, what are your name servers set to? If on Windows from a cmd prompt you can run: ipconfig /all If in Linux, your name servers should be in /etc/resolv.conf Make sure they are set to only use your new name server. By default, the system will search for the SOA (Start of Authority) and return whatever ...

Use Allow/Deny instead: <Location /test/manager/> Order Deny,Allow Deny from 192.168.1.0/24 Allow from 192.168.1.4 192.168.1.5 192.168.1.6 </Location> Notice that this allows also any other IP, which I think is not what you want. If so, swap the Order and remove the Deny line: <Location /test/manager/> Order Allow,Deny Allow ...

service apache fullstatus is an alias for /usr/sbin/apachectl fullstatus. From the manual of apachectl: fullstatus Displays a full status report from mod_status. For this to work, you need to have mod_status enabled on your server and a text-based browser such as lynx available on your system. The URL used to access the status report can be set ...
