As you are referring to access over internet please look into the manual provided by the hosting company.

Have you tried to replace 'localhost' with the IP-adr. to your office machine??

Is the office's firewall's port forward enabled on the port used by Tomcat??

Please check whether the Firewall is ON/OFF in the localhost.
Sometimes if it's OFF only this can be accessible
from other machines.

Also if proxy is set in the
remote host, try to by-pass this particular
application(URL) from the remote machine.
