Hi Behrooz,

Hmm, this is definitely an interesting one.  I'm not sure what is 
causing that.  If you open a command prompt and 'ping' do you 
get a reply?  If you don't get a response, maybe it's an XP SP2 firewall 
issue (?).  Make sure the XP firewall is fully shut down and give it a 
try again.

other things to try:

- specify "ServerName" in httpd.conf (/ms4w/apache/conf/)

- modify your 'hosts' file (/windows/system32/drivers/etc/) and try 
placing "yourIP localhost" in it (and reboot)

Maybe other users have some ideas.
