Anthony Boyd, Alex Röhlich,
Some ISPs block port 80, and then ask their customers to pay more money
if they want to run a server. You have likely run into this problem.
Other problems are possible. Your router, if it's really a firewall,
may be configured to allow outgoing port 80 but not incoming. That's
vendor-specific, so crack open the manuals if that's the problem.
Or, to be Apache-specific about it, I suppose you could have modified
your httpd.conf file and accidentally removed the following line:
If you are missing that line in httpd.conf, add it back in. Another
Apache-specific suggestion: be sure Apache is running.

In an answer to another question, I went into more detail about setting
up ports. If what I've written above isn't enough information for you,
