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
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.
