XSP2: My mac is inaccessible on port 8080

I'm trying to provide a mono web service to someone at my house on the local network, but they can't seem to connect on my IP address at port 8080. I can get there via 127.0.0.1:8080, but he can't via my 192.168 address. What can I do to start troubleshooting this? I've never really investigated a network problem on my Mac before. Sorry if this is a noob question, feel free to direct me to a web resource if it applies.

"Are you running it from the command line? Try explicitly spelling out the ip when you run the server:

xsp2 --address 192.168.1.100

Or whatever your actual IP is. You could also use the --port flag as well if you wanted to use port 80 or something."

"its a firewall problem for sure. I'm not a mac person, but Try to disable your firewall
also try having the other person go to yourip:80 doubt it, but it might work"
