You hit it right on, it was iptables. I didn't realize CentOS had iptables running by default.
For any others with this issue, I ran these commands:
service iptables stop
service ip6tables stop.

Now that I can access futon, I'll start seeing how this software works.

In my experience, that sounds like one of two things: 

1. bind_address in local.ini/default.ini being set to instead of
2. iptables or similar blocking inbound connections

If you've discounted [2], have you tried [1]?

Neither will respond, Firefox times out with this message: The connection has timed out. The
server at hostname is taking too long to respond.
