I have a Tomcat web-server running on a machine within my home wireless network, and I'm willing to connect to it from other devices/machines. The problem is that the only way to access web server is via
my-computer-name -- only from server's machine. The strange thing is that:
- I can ping 192.168.16.103 (my server's IP) -- from any machine
- .. but 192.168.16.103:8080 is not accessible even from server machine itself
I know it sounds as a basic firewall issue, but I have turned it off, and even (just in case) tried to switch all network-related shields of my antivirus. All the rest configuration (including wireless router) is pretty much standard, except for router's gateway ip set to 192.168.16.16.
At this point I'm stuck, and can't figure out what's the problem.. maybe some router settings that I've missed. The router is TP-LINK TL-WR741N.
Any help appreciated, thank you.
EDIT The OS is Windows 7
