I don't have a DNS server here, just a /etc/hosts file. is 
listed in the hosts file at
nslookup finds at the public IP provided by my ISP.
Shorewall has the rule:
Action				ACCEPT
Source Zone			Net
Destination Zone		<Any>
Protocol				TCP
Source Ports			Any
Destination Ports		8080

Trying to access the domain:8080 from within this LAN results in a timeout. 
Trying to access the domain:8080 from an office elsewhere results in an alert 
that the connection was refused.

I'm mystified. I'd be grateful for any help. Thank you!
