Default http://ip address:8080 is not working in Linux

I installed Apache Tomcat 5.5 in my VMVare RedHat Linux Instance. After I applied, $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh, the default URL http://localhost:8080 is working but if I used IP address, http://ip address:8080, it does not work.

Initially, I thought I did not configure my network properly. After, I installed Apache HTTP to test my network machine again. It turn-out that both http://localhost and http://ip address are working for Apache HTTP. It means that my network machine configures properly.

So, I am pretty sure something wrong in my Tomcat. What could be wrong in my Tomcat configuration?

Thank in advance!

I feel you are giving theip address of the machine but you are running the linux image on VMWare.See there will be a separate ip-address for VMWare, use this ip address. For this issue ipconfig on command line there you will see various entries specifying theip addresses. Take the address corresponding to the VMWarenetwork adapter and try accessing tomcat with this address.
