Try disabling iptables and see if you can then access it:

# service iptables stop

Then you know it's iptables, and can add an iptables entry for apache:

# service iptables start
# iptables -I RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -I RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT
# iptables-save >/etc/sysconfig/iptables

Or do so graphically through /usr/bin/system-config-securitylevel

Or disable iptables all together (if behind a firewall) with:

# chkconfig iptables off
