    Well, if you want other people to be able to view your site, then yes, you have to be connected to the net. However, you can just have apache running without being connected to the net and you can test stuff out by going to http://localhost/

    If you are using Apache, jsut upload all of your pages into the HTML or PUBLIC_HTML folder and then just type in http://yoururl.com/pagewanted and it should come out fine

    Also if you don't have a domain name you can use : http://serverip/youraccountname/yourfile.html

    It can be the same computer that you use but this isn't a good idea if you're trying to hosting something with many visitors. Depending on your ISP connection your hosting speed will be limited by it. You can host a small site off cable but make sure to check your ISP's terms of agreement before doing so.

    Have fun!

    You can really only limit through apache with mod_throttle. Look at your apache config and see if there is anything that says "ThrottlePolicy" at all. That will let you know if its apache or your connection.

    Make sure you check out www.apache.org for documentation on setting it up.
