My Tomcat server is running. When i try to connect server from my machine i am able to connect.
But when i connect the same URL from a different machine, i am getting "Connection Refused Error".(I am using system IP to connect Ex: "http://198.xx.x.x:8080/xxx")
Please help,how to make my Tomcat server available everywhere.

Usually this means that a firewall is blocking access to Tomcat.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
