i have developed a project in netbeans using jsp as server side language.
the project is online exam system.
Now how to call this project from LAN i. e computers on LAN will be like clients(Test users) and my netbeans project is on one of the machines on LAN(should act as server).
This is what i have tried..
From the start of my code development, i have been using GlassFish server of netbeans to Deploy and test my code on local machine
now when i deploy and call a page from a machine in LAN, i dont get the required output page.
this is how the url request is- http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8080/onlineexam/login.jsp
since i am using GlassFish server it would be great if i can get output using it, else i will try it using tomcat!
I doubt if am making some mistake in the above url path, like .."onlinexam" in the above path is the name of the folder in netbeans where all my code files are saved..so is that the correct path? and is 8080 a standard port to be used for such communication?
Any suggestions would be helpful.

Firewall on server was blocking port number 8080[size=12]

I just Disabled the firewall and it worked
WHAT? Your solution to a firewall blocking a particular port is to disable the firewall entirely? What you need to do is to re-enable the firewall, and to configure it so traffic to port 8080 goes through.
