Is your computer or some other machine? If it's your computer and you're trying to access it from that same computer, it should work without having to open the port in the firewall. Because it's only a local connection.

Make sure the web application is running and is configured for port 8092. From a command prompt you can try this command to look for port 8092 where the state=LISTENING:

netstat -a -p TCP
