HTTP issue with playground

Hi,

I am using the playground server to train for my RHCSA, but for some reason whenever I install the httpd service, start it and try to connect via firefox or chrome I do not get the apache webpage. When I use elink from another server I do get it.

I have spent 2 days on this subject, recreating many servers and following the videos step by step, and honestly I am just lost.

Could you please help?

Thank you

    Check to see if you have firewalld installed, it might be blocking port 80 on the public network. Also make sure you're using the public IP and/or hostname when testing. The hostname is [username][servernumber]c.mylabserver.com for the playground servers. Remember to include the c there as it's not the same as the cloud servers.

    I tried to play around with firewalld. I was sure port 80/tcp was allowed in my zone. Everything was fine with that. I was just using the incorrect IP I guess, because it works with the public IP.
    Thank you so much!
