cannot access youtrack standalone from other machine

I installed YouTrack 4.1 on my Windows 2003 Server machine located somewhere out there, and I did a little bit of configuration on it, like creating a user and a project.
Then, I went to my DNS management thingie and I made "youtrack.mydomain.com" point to my server's IP address.

When I am connected to my server via terminal services (remote desktop) I can fire up a browser and access YouTrack via http://localhost:8080, via http://my-server's-ip-address:8080, and via http://youtrack.mydomain.com:8080.  

But if I try to access YouTrack from my machine at home, neither http://my-server's-ip-address:8080 nor http://youtrack.mydomain.com:8080 work: after some waiting my browser gives me a "Could not connect to remote server" error.

What is wrong?

I have absolutely no experience with apache, so please explain as if you are explaining to an idiot.

Cheers!

Never mind, the problem had the most obvious solution, that is, port 8080 had to be enabled via the Windows firewall.

Just guessing but: It could be port 8080 is not routed on the outward facing firewall or router.

I have the same issue. I've opened ports and even try to disable firewall at all. But I can't get access to YouTrack from network. Only on PC where the YT is installed.
What should I try to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance.
