Well, by serving people a page with "localhost", you give no indication of
where the Helix Server actually resides. "Localhost" would be useful if
you gave the user a tool for investigating/probing his/her own
Have you tried specifying an IP address? Have you disabled firewalls for
port 8888? If you need a proxy to access your page from London, let me
know. I have an open proxy (password-protected) on my server.

Your English is great. Haven't spotted anything awkward...
