it sounds like you have a routing issue, but without the specific
information it's hard to say.

eg my_ipaddress could be an external IP address which gets handled by a
NAT port forwarded router, and requests from inside the NAT are not
being bounced back in to the server.  The fix for this case is to either
configure that NAT to bounce internal requests back in or to use an
external DNS name (instead of my_ipaddress) and override that DNS with
the local inside-NAT name for your local machines.
