Hi, I have been using Tomcat 4 to test my Servlets and JSP for a while now. But I only been testing it through my own computer, by using the URL:
http://localhost:8080/index.jsp
now I wanted to test access this server computer through an another computer elsewhere, by using the IP of this server:
so if the server IP is: 82.34.xxx.x
I type the following URL on the remote(client) computer web browser:
http://82.34.xxx.x:8080/index.jsp
The problem is: The page cannot be display! even I disable the firewall from the server. and I tried this URL on the server itself, using IP 82.34.xxx.x rather then localhost, it still works.
I know this is a simple case to solve, but rather I go and buy a book, I prefer to get the answer free here. Can you help me?
Thank you.

Cheapskate!
Try and ping that IP address from the other box. If you can't ping, you have a basic lack of connectivity. If you can, there's most likely a firewall still active somewhere.

I have ping the server IP both on the client and the server, and result 100% loss... so can you tell me how to solve the 'lack of connectivity' problem?
Thank you.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
