Hi all experts,

I have developed a web site for fulfilling needs of our process in our company, I tested it. It woeks fine on local host ( but when i try to access it from another computer in network, It Doesn't open the page. I think its a firewall issue.

OS : Windows XP
Compnay Antivirus/Firewall : Mcaffe
Web Server : Apache Tomcat

I dont want by website to be left unused !

Sounds like a firewall issue to me - talk to your network administrator.
