Perhaps you should mention what server-software you use... Include the OS and application with all version numbers. – Ger Apeldoorn Mar 8 '10 at 12:24
To find out what your IP address is, type ipconfig in a command window on Microsoft Windows, or ifconfig in a terminal windows on Linux. Others can then contact your machine on x.x.x.x:8080 – PP. Mar 8 '10 at 13:52

Your are mentionning Apache. By default, you might have somewhere in Apache configuration (probably in httpd.conf) a line with Listen directive. It might be Listen if you are using a package like WAMP under Windows...

Change this line to Listen 8080, restart Apache and have the other computer try reaching http://your.LAN.ip.address:8080 and see if it works.

If you happen to give some more details on your current setup, it might easier to assist ;)

Good luck.
