Can you be more specific? What does "not working" mean?

You are not using mod_jk so the mod_jk page won't help. Your
configuration shows that you are using mod_proxy_http which proxies HTTP
and does not use AJP at all.

My immediate thoughts are:

1. IP is in a non-routable IP space. That means that you
will always be referring to a machine on the local network. You need to
use the IP address of the actual server (or some other device that
forwards appropriately).

2. Port 8080 is unlikely to be open on your firewall to the outside
world unless you explicitly open it.

Something tells me your httpd/Tomcat configuration is fine: it's a
networking problem you'll have to overcome.
