I'm trying to connect to a webserver that's running on my mac OSX 1.6. I'm able to connect to it locally using http://127.0.0.1:8888/myapp but when I attempt to connect to it using my machine's local IP address (http://192.168.1.15:8888/myapp IP shown below) from the same machine (or another on the network) I cannot connect. I can ping the LAN IP address.

I've tried adding IP forwarding to my router for port 8888 but it didn't help. I've checked and the OSX firewall is disabled

Can anyone suggest what else is blocking the connection?

Here's what I get when I run ifconfig:
