I'm guessing you're using the initialization code from here?

http://webpython.codepoint.net/wsgi_environment_dictionary

According to the docstring, the first argument to make_server() is the
host name to bind to. Using "localhost" means you're bound to
127.0.0.1, as you see. Use your LAN IP address there, or "" to bind to
all local addresses - or possibly "::" to bind to all IPv6 addresses
(try it and see - some systems work with one or the other, others work
happily with both together).
