No offense taken. As a programmer I definitely have been bitten by 
the silly little things often enough that I'll try whatever.

Yup and it was. After I determined that tomcat was running and that I 
was able to view the start page with lynx (Man how could I have 
forgotten about lynx) I knew then it had to be firewall but I also 
knew it wasn't a blocked port. Everytime my firewall rules block 
something I log it and there was nothing there so I knew I opened the 
port up properly.

Upon further inspection I realized that it was being redirected. One 
single line, easy to miss but it was me being lazy a while back. 
Basically my script closes every single port then I open up specific 
ones. Well I got tired of that and made a rule that redirected a 
group to another machine and 8080 (Which I never used before) was in 
that range. I took it out and voila it worked like a charm.

Thanks for your help. I just know I'll have some other issues as I'm 
still new to tomcat. I have a client right now waiting to see 
something and I need to put something up there. I believe I have to 
create a context in server.xml so that he can do www.mydomain.

I've not done this before though. On my development machine I've used 
Netbeans to test and deploy stuff for me. Ah the learning never ends.
