Not enough information given out by me here. My apologies.
The only services I am having problems with is Apache and Webmin, whether or
not these are related, I don't know. I can telnet, ping, ftp, access the
Oracle Database on this server from remote PC's. By remote, I mean other
PC's on the LAN. This server is not connected to the internet. I have
played with the firewall settings in the firewall-config app supplied in the
RedHat package, but nothing seems to work.
Any further help would be appreciated.
