How to have server other than local host

Hello, whenever I start the influx db it gets directed to - Connected to http://localhost:8086 version 1.7.10.
But what should I do if I want my server on http://x.x.x.x:8086 version 1.7.10 i.e some other ip address other than local host?
Also to access the the data stored in the database via browser, is it necessary that the server has internet access?
Please let me know, if anyone have inputs on these issues.
