The information from ipconfig is LAN info, not internet info. Go to whatsmyip.org from that machine to easily determine the internet IP.
If the server is hooked up to a router, traffic on port 7000 will probably need to be redirected to that machine's LAN IP with the router.

Hello Sir, Thank you for your reply. As u said i went to http://www.whatsmyip.org/ and checked my ip address there. Actually, it matched with the one shown by ipconfig.
If possible, can u please explain in more detail about
"If the server is hooked up to a router, traffic on port 7000 will probably need to be redirected to that machine's LAN IP with the router."
Actually, I am not the admin of my LAN but i can talk to my admin regarding whatevere u say.
Thank you, Amith

Interesting that your IP from ipconfig and whatsmyip.org are the same, which means I'm already out of my element.
Here's my setup at home:
Tomcat and Apache running on machine connected to router, connected to cable modem. Router directs internet traffic from port 80 and 8080 to that machine's LAN IP. I can access Tomcat, directly, from anywhere.
You mentioned that you have something on port 8080, if you can access that from outside the LAN, have the systems person set things up the same way for port 7000. [ November 03, 2004: Message edited by: Ray Stojonic ]
I chose port number as 7000 because I have some oracle stuff running on ports 80 and 8080.
Any LAN admin worth his/her pay is going to have a firewall in place that blocks connections to all ports except those specifically allowed. Opening all ports to the outside world is asking for trouble. Bill
