I've installed Apache using Homebrew on a Mac Studio (M1) running Monterey and it works fine when working locally. But when I'm working on a website from a separate Ubuntu laptop, I often cannot access the website on the Mac; the request is pending.

But when I now connect to the mac by SFTP and navigate around, the web request suddenly succeeds as if I had to "wake up" the Mac.

Maybe there's a setting to tell macOS that it should wake up on TCP requests on port 80 as it does on SSH requests?

Same issue here. Other services like sshd and vnc do work, but not Apache.

UPDATE: I kicked (i.e. rebooted) my Mac and it worked again.
