I downloaded, installed, enabled and configured the linkchecker module. When I run it from the Drupal interface, it seems to be checking but I don't see in the report a test link (within ) that I have purposefully misspelled. This test link is to an external site. Does it matter for the link checker module if my development site is not publicly accessible-- I think it is accessible only from campus.

-- It worked after running cron job manually.
site-url/cron.php for D5 and D6
-- OR For Drupal 6.x, see in your site: Administer > Reports > Status report > Cron maintenance tasks > Run cron manually.
http://site-url/cron.phpin browser to run cron job (it yields blank page after the run)
