I presume you tried to make this work over the internet.  If so, a few
questions: Do you (or rather, does your PC) have a public IP address?  If
not, then did you configure your router to port forward port 80 from its IP
address (which is your public IP address) to your PC's (impliedly) local
private address?  And did you program your router's public IP address into
the client as the IP address to connect to?
