Impossible to answer. You need to add at least some details about your server setup and network configuration. Which OS, for example. – Pekka 웃 Aug 21 '10 at 10:33

can you ping ServerIP, from 'another network'? If yes then probably firewall is blocking access on this port. If no, set up your network correctly.
