lynx Can't access startfile


I have a website hosted on mydom.org. I'm trying to view a web page from that server using lynx:
Code:
# lynx mydom.org

Looking up mydom.org
Making HTTP connection to mydom.org
Alert!: Unable to connect to remote host.

lynx: Can't access startfile mydom.org
I've also tried www.mydom.org, http://mydom.org, http://www.mydom.org; and all the same variations of mydom.org/index.jsp (yes, I'm running tomcat). Same thing. I can successfully access this page using lynx from a remote host.

What's wrong?
