I installed GeoServer 2.5.2, GeoNetwork 2.10.3 and Tomcat 7 on my Windows 7 computer {MyComputer} in our company's network. Now I would like to access GeoServer, GeoNetwork and Tomcat from other computers in the network.

However, I could only access via the web browser GeoNetwork and Tomcat but not GeoServer.

NO - http://{MyComputer}.{domain}.com:8070/geoserver/web/

YES - http://{MyComputer}.{domain}.com:8040/geonetwork/srv/eng/main.home

YES - http://{MyComputer}.{domain}.com:8080

Is there any configuration that I missed?

    DO you have a firewall, or something else that might block something on the 8070 port? secondly, when you say you cannot access, what exactly do you see? do you see a timeout error or something else? – Devdatta Tengshe Aug 27 '14 at 3:26
  • Yes I have a firewall enabled. How do I set port 8070 opened? What I saw on the browser is "This webpage is not available" on Google Chrome. – alextc Aug 27 '14 at 3:31

Problem solved. I had to add a New Rule to the Advanced Firewall Settings for opening port 8070 for inbound traffic.
