Hi Orson,

I'm pretty sure the problem is that Apache is not responding to the
incoming external packets, not that the outgoing packets are being

The reason why I say this is because:

* /var/log/apache/access.log
* /var/log/apache/dirac.org.access.log
* /var/log/apache/iuselinux.org.access.log

are all empty.  When I access dirac.org from inside the LAN, I can see
exactly which files and images are requested because they get logged
in the *.access logs.  But when I access dirac.org from outside the
LAN, the requests aren't logged in the *.access files.

So therefore, I don't think Apache is responding to external requests.
