Theoretically you should be able address Tomcat on the other machine, but routers and firewalls may be preventing it, especially since you are using a port not the normal web server port. What exactly separates the two machines? Are they on the same LAN? Behind the same router? Bill

Well... I wanted anyone to be able to connect to my pc. In my house there are 2 macs, and my pc whioh use the same router. And I think they are on a LAN too.
I found the IP address for this pc, and the mac laptop was the same. So I guess its referring to the router When I use this address in my browser, the routers page comes up. The WAN IP is 188.8.131.52 (same as IP's found above).
For my pc, the IP address is 192.168.2.2(from router page)
Also, there is a virtual server option and a firewall option, as well as filters. It needs to know the LAN port and Public Port, would this be 80 then 84? I'll try it. Its a bit difficult trying to explain when I don't know how it works. Thanks for any help
