Cannot access local app server on port 8080

May 23, 2011 at 07:51:33
Specs: Windows 7
I'm trying to develop and test a website from my iPad. I have my laptop and iPad on same local network, 192.168.1.x

They can see each other over network and I can access the page:
192.168.1.105:80 (my laptops local web server) from both iPad and laptop. However the application server runs on port 8080 and I cannot access this from either device/machine. I'm puzzled by this as I wouldn't think the router's firewall is playing a role, and I have no software firewall running on laptop that I'm aware of (turned off windows 7 firewall). Even more frustrating is I can access this:
localhost:8080/myWebSite
or 127.0.0.1 also works on port 8080.
The only combo that does not work is 192.168.1.105 with port 8080. I need this so the iPad can hit the site so I can test locally while developing. Any ideas or things to check would be greatly appreciated.

If the application server is accessable, when using 127.0.0.1:8080 or localhost:8080, it is most likely, that you have to configure the application server, to work also on the network card.

Open CMD (command prompt) at the server and type in netstat -ant

You should get a list of ip addresses and ports, the server is listening on.

If there is no 192.168.1.105 listening on port 8080, but only 127.0.0.1 listening on port 8080, reconfigure the application server for also using the network card.

Thanks guys thats what I ended up doing and it worked. Netstat revealed the app server was not listening on port 8080 for all ips. I had to configure JBoss with the -b run parameter for 0.0.0.0, causing it to bind to all addresses.
