Visibility of web site with Tomcat/JSP port 8088

Hello and thanks for the quick and useful replies on an earlier thread about Tomcat server pages being inaccessible outside of building . I still have the problem however. We can access the application using the address in the form www.ouruniversity.edu:8088/appname/admin
but when trying to access it from another building on campus or from home, no.
I'm a newbie to Tomcat so I'm wondering if there is setting somewhere that's causing this problem. We have a web site (Apache server) that IS accessible worldwide using port 80. I have added apps to the Tomcat server but I didn't configure it initially. I can post the code from web.xml or server.xml if that would help. Thanks again!

Tomcat may be sitting behind a firewall that is blocking the port. You may need to check with the universities IT department to verify that.
