Tomcat can serve as an app server and webserver but not as a dns server.
To access your website in the intranet you need to have a server that is accessible via the internet and have its IP address published to a DNS server (your own or a service provider) that will map your sites domain name to the ip address.
I believe win2k advanced server has a dns server built in.
tomcat can handle internet connections.
you still have to use the port
http://192.168.2.3:8080/my_webapp/login.jsp
if you don't want to use the 8080 port.  Either have tomcat listen on port 80 or bring IIS into the picture.
