I've set up a SharePoint Server 2013 on Virtual Machine. When I am connected to this machine with Remote Desktop and navigate to my SP site with browser, I get to log in without problems. But when I navigate to this site from another computer, after logging in with my username and password, I get 401 UNAUTHORIZED. My site uses Windows Authentication.

Are there any configuration settings, that I may have missed, that prevent me from accessing this site from outside world?

outside world means outside domain? or within the domain but different machine? Also, check VM settings - what network is it using? – Arsalan Adam Khatri Nov 21 '12 at 14:01

I feel almost stupid, but the thing I was looking for is...
Alternate Access Mappings.

Need to go to Central Admin > Application Management > Alternate Access Mappings > Edit Public URLs and add my full server name to Internet zone.
