How are you getting your layer with openlayers?

If you are passing the url as "localhost:8181/geoserver" javascript won't find it because JavaScript works on the client side. Also, JavaScript can only access geoserver if its on the same host (for security reasons). You'll have to set up a proxy for geoserver so you can access geoserver from yourhost/geoserver instead of yourhost:8181/geoserver.
