You can either allow them to connect to your machine using the address or you can create a name that maps to How you create the name depends on what infrastructure you have. If you have a local DNS server then add the name pointing to into that. Failing that you could add the name to the hosts file on you machines.

Open port 80 on firewall? – LazyOne Aug 26 '11 at 11:41
check that you have port 80 on your firewall open – Iain Aug 26 '11 at 11:41

Check that Windows Firewall allows external connections from local IP addresses on your network to port 80. Opening ports on this page explains how to do that.
