I also cannot get to your server:

$ ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
--- ping statistics ---
7 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 6041ms

$ p4 -p info
Perforce client error:
    Connect to server failed; check $P4PORT.
    TCP connect to failed.
    connect: Connection timed out

Check your IP address using    http://www.whatismyip.com

Also open up ping to at least check that there is connectivity.
