Do you have a static IP address? =)

Most DSL services give you 'communal' IP addresses.  You don't have a
'unique' one for each of your machines - and they change every time you
connect.  My guess is that this is most likely your problem.  To rectify it,
check on getting your own IP address/pool through your DSL provider.
Another thing too - if you want to be able to access your computer by name -
you'll need a domain if you don't have one.

Additionally, you will need to ensure that you have the domain set up to
point to the correct IP Address.  Also, I'm not entirely sure how your LAN
is configured - but if all of your machines are sharing one IP Address
you'll need to check into configuring your router to direct all http/https
traffic to the specific machine that has Tomcat installed on it.

*looks around* Did I miss anything guys?

I hope that answers your question.  If I totally misjudged your perdicament,
please feel free to repost =)
