Standalone Tomcat

I'm in the process of deploying dynamic content via servelts and am having problems configuring the Tomcat server. I'm not interested in serving much static content, so I'd like to run Tomcat by itself - without using Apache, IIS, etc. I downloaded and upacked Tomact on my local (Win98) machine and was immediately able to access the server via "http://localhost:8080". I cannot, however, access Tomcat via "http://myIPAddress:8080". Are there some special settings I need to configure? I know I've used Tomcat in the past without changing its default settings, but that was on a Win2K machine running IIS.
I should also mention that my machine is part of a LAN, the LAN is managed by a Win2K server, and the server in connected to the internet via cable modem. The guy who configured the LAN and server left before I arrived, so I have no idea whether there's a firewall, etc. in place.

The single Win2k server which has the cable modem, probably is doing NAT for you? When your machines come onto the LAN, what IP address are they assigned? A routable one, or an 'internal only' one?
I agree. Here's the link:
