Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

basically port 80 for http and prot 443 for https to be opend in the firewall in webserver to allow connctions from clients .We have to idenfy whether the problem with your networking setup,your server nw configuration or your application .Todo so try pinging the webserver ip from webserver using -t switch and see if any issues then try this from clinets and confirm you have not any problems with your NW setup .

    Since you say, "sometimes the client not able to browse the pages, it shows "page cant be displayed", is sounds like your ports are fine. Random issues like this could be many things. I would check you're internet access. Do you have a static IP?, What's your Up/Down Speed? How many users at any given time? Can they refresh/reload and get it to work? Is there a login?
