This is the same question asked here. I don't know if this issue was resolved. I am unable to connect to my local server from other network PCs.
I am using Eclipse with Tomcat to run my web application. It is a simple demo html page with no server code. It is opening in my own system when I am using http://localhost:8080 or my static ip as http://188.8.131.52:8080. But if I try to access this page from another PC on the same network, I get network timeout error. I am using Ubuntu 11 whereas other network PCs are using Windows. Those PCs are able to ping my IP and get a reply, only the web page do not come in the browser. Are there any firewall settings or any other settings I need to do for Network PCs to be able to access my server?
