Hi Francis,

I am trying to access the web server from a bunch of windows machines (I
don't have any linux desktops). My /etc/hosts file already reads: localhost ubuntuserver test

Where the final address is the local address of the server. When I do the
curl operation from the server on http://test/ then I get the index.html
page back, which is encouraging, but when I try to ping it from any of my
windows machines then I get nothing.
