Notebook access from remote computer does not work

I installed the binary Sage app (Sage 5.11 OS X 10.6) on OS X 10.7.4. When I click on the Sage icon, Sage starts and opens the web browser to URL localhost:8080. There I have access to my Sage notebooks and every thing works fine.
I would like to access the notebook server over my home network using my iPad. To do this, I follow the instructions in the Sage documents. That is, I start a Sage terminal session and at the sage prompt type notebook(interface='') and hit the return button. The Sage app then opens another browser window at localhost:8080. I try to access the notebook server from my iPad, but it says in the web browser window that the server cannot be found.
I tried closing the web browser on the localhost and using the Sage menu option "Stop server" before starting the Sage terminal but nothing results in the notebook being served over the local network.
How can I get the notebook served over my home network?
If you cannot answer my questions, what can I do to trouble shoot the problem?
