how to set the base url on the server

we set up jira on a windows server with the standard configuration. But all of the icons and avatars are broken links (empty placeholders). Further investigation revealed that the path for these images all start with http://localhost:8080/images, rather than http://myservername:8080/images. So the images all show up fine when viewed from the host server, but are broken when viewed from any remote client. How do I change this?

In the Administration go to System -> General Configuration -> Edit Configuration, there you can edit the Base URL
