Are you running a personal fire wall? Are you running behind a NAT enabled 
device like a LinkSys DSL router?

Can you explain your home setup?

If you have a fire wall you'll need to allow remote machine access to port 
80. With a LinkSys you'll need to port forward port 80 to your PC. You 
might need to do both.
