I got it working (I had to ask my linux support group). Anyways, I had to redirect the out put like such: in the url bar I typed <ipaddress of xbmc box>:<open port>. in my case it was '8080'.

to find the port that is open:
So, you want to verify that the ports are open.

I like using a tool called nmap for that (although nc/netstat will also do this):

<install nmap for your computer> apt-get install nmap (in my case)

nmap $IPADDRESS of xbmc box

Is port 80 running?

~$ nmap 192.168.0.3
Starting Nmap 6.00 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-06-17 10:30 MST
Nmap scan report for 192.168.0.3
Host is up (0.024s latency).
Not shown: 999 closed ports
PORT STATE SERVICE
8080/tcp open http-proxy
Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 12.82 seconds

this shows port 8080 is open

as such I would type <ip_of_xbmc_box>:8080
