Another variable to throw into the mix, just for fun -- do you have a
proxy? Squid doing a little web-caching perhaps? That can mess you up
as well.

   telnet 8080
   GET / HTTP/1.0

(follow the GET with a blank line) and see if you get any HTML back.
You can try it from the same computer and/or other computers nearby.

If you do get an appropriate HTTP response, Tomcat is well and you've
got other issues. If you can't open the port at all, Tomcat isn't
listening. If you can open the port but Tomcat doesn't play nice with
an HTTP response, your configuration needs attention.
