MS CRM 2011 - Can Open from Server (RDT) but not from PC linked to network

Good Day,
1. I have installed MS CRM 2011 onto the server.
2. I can access and perform functions on it when using Remote Desktop to the Server.
3. When typing in the url on a PC in the network it is stating that the web page cannot be displayed.
4. I do use the server name in the url instead of localhost (servername:5555) when RDT and am using the same url when trying to access from a PC in the LAN.
5. It will be much appreciated if some one can help me - Do not know what is causing it.
Thanking you in advance.
Kind Regards.
Pierre Eksteen.

Hi Chinmay,

Am I correct by assuming that I must do this from the PC in the LAN?
If so, I'll have this for you by tomorrow - offices are closed.

Hi Pierre,

Yes. You are right, you will have to do this from the PC in the LAN. Sorry I should have mentioned that.
