That would mean that port 80 is disabled... If you are on 6.06 go to System > Administration > Firestarter. Or if you don't see Firestarter it's not installed, go to Applications > Add/Remove > then search for Firestarter and install it.

From the Firestarter window click the Policy tab. Select Editing Inbound traffic. Then right click under the Allow service area and press Add Rule. From that window add a rule for HTTP and HTTPS. Do that same for FTP or POP3 if you intend to use them.

Make sure port 80 is open on your system and configure other apps that you might have.
