Starting Bamboo on remote server


     Installed bamboo on my local machine and I was successfully start the wizard by going to localhost:8085

But when I try to install it on a remote server and try to access it by going to <remote IP>:8085 it does not work

I can telnet to my remote IP (port: 8085) without any problem

As suggested on some forum I modified conf/server.xml and added my remote address:

            address="<Remote IP address>"
But even this does not work. I get the following error:

(Note I have masked my IP with XXX in the logs)

build@build-server:/opt/builds/bamboo/atlassian-bamboo-5.12.1$ bin/ -fg

Server startup logs are located in /opt/builds/bamboo/atlassian-bamboo-5.12.1/logs/catalina.out
