(pardon my ignorance, I am not familiar enough with http to understand the background of this. I'd be grateful if you could enlighten me).
I have a webserver that runs on http://localhost:8080. However, it doesn't work when I type my machine name (I am on a machine with a DNS name behind a firewall). Even on my own machine, if i write "machinename:8080" it fails, but going to "localhost:8080" works.
Why is this? Is there a way to force my way into enabling "machinename:some_other_port" to just serve whatever localhost:8080 serves?
Thanks a lot
