Windows firewall blocks access to Apache Tomcat service from remote computer

Today, my colleague installed Tomcat as windows service on a Windows 7 box, strangely he could access via http://127.0.0.1:8080 and http://ipofserver:8080, but he could not access http://ipofserver:8080 from a remote computer. After some digging, it turns out to be the Windows 7 firewall blocked the remote access traffic. The solution of the problem is simple: just manually start the tomcat7.exe, Windows 7 will show the firewall warning dialog, just allow access.;-)
