The fact that you are doing it from a windows machine could be a red
herring. Some appliance NAT routers have spotty or no support for server
address loopback (in other words connections from the LAN side to the
WAN address on a port which is routed to a LAN machine). Can you reach
Apache from the FC2 machine it's running on using the WAN address?
