I'm no expert but I think you will find that the problem is not tomcat. 
Yep you need a public ip for it to work, and I would say a dns entry 
somewhere also. For example, if your machine is called 'fred' you should 
be able to 'ping' and recieve a reply. At the moment 
I'm guessing you can only ping the ip number address. A dns entry will 
link that PUBLIC ip address number to the dns entry ''

I don't know how to fix the problem (especially in windows, I'm linux), 
but I can tell you what I think it is.

Hope this helps you out.
