Are you pointing your browser at
At a guess, the first should work, and the second shouldn't. Your
browser is free to bind to any local interface it likes when it creates
a socket to connect to somewhere... default behaviour for sockets is to
try pick an appropriate interface, so if you point your browser at a
"real" IP addres, or a domain name that maps to one, it will connect
from your internet connection's address, not your localhost one.
I hope this helps (and I hope I'm making sense :)
