Using IP Address through Tomcat

Is there a way for me to see my useRegistration.jsp file in the browser by using the internet IP Address? For example http://--.--.--.--:8080/WebModule/useRegistration.jsp and not in the ordinary way by using the localhost Address

Either localhost or your computer's name on the network or the Internet address should work. HOWEVER, if your network is protected by a firewall that does not let in port 8080, you are not going to be able to connect.

Thanks for your reply.
I changed the port to 8083 and I still can't see the useRegistration page. I'm using windows XP, do I need to disable the internal firewall as well?
