netstat -ltune
and make sure you have a process listening on port 8181. If so then make sure your firewall isn't blocking that port. If you're running iptables you can do
iptables -L
to see your current rules. To do a quick test you could just turn of the firewall for a second to see if that fixes it. If so then you know you'll need to add a new firewall rule.
