I recently purchased a .ca domain, and own Snow Leopard server running on a mac mini. I set up the site, load it, and enter all the proper information into the server software. If I look at the web using Safari running on the server machine, I can see the site, no problem. The problem is is that no other machine can apparently see the site. As far as I can tell, the DNS settings are correct, the web settings are correct and everything is running and all the proper checkmarks are checkmarked.

 

Any ideas? What might I have missed turning on?

    What devices — server-grade gateways, routers, low-grade NAT-only boxes — are located between your OS X Server box server and the Internet?

     

    ...This device can control what connections reach your server.

     

    Do you have a static IP connection and a server tier of service configuration with your ISP, or are you attempting to use a residential/dynamic IP address for your server?

     

    ...Various ISPs can and variously do block in-bound server-oriented connections and protocols — such as HTTP/80 and HTTPS/443 connections — from their lower tiers of service.

     

    What OS X or OS X Server version are you using? 

     

    ...Web services management does differ across the recent OS X Server versions.
