Plone: Connection was refused when attempting to connect"

Plone: Connection was refused when attempting to connect"

Plone: Connection was refused when attempting to connect"

I have set up a Plone on a Fedora Core 1 Linux box. I don't have any trouble accessing Plone from http://localhost:8080/plone, but when I try accessing it from another computer on the LAN as follows:

I get the above error message "Connection was refused." I know it's something to do with Plone or ZServer since I can access an html file that Apache serves up just fine.  I disabled the firewall so I also know it's not that.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Plone: Connection was refused when attempting to connect"

It's because 8080 is the administrative port. Just point your browser at (or whatever name you've given your portal..)
