do you have a DNS server on your LAN? if not you need to add these hostnames and IP's to every machines hosts file that you intend to access the server from

You need to have DNS server to resolve the name to an IP address, or have the name and IP adddress entered in the hosts file on the system you are using to access the remote site. Secondly make sure that you don't have an iptables rule or other firewall rule blocking the port (in this case I think 8000) from external access.
