There's nothing running on port 8080.

What hostnames and ports did you use for these two telnet command?

You're getting a Bad Request error because you omitted the Host header.
It should include the hostname, e.g. localhost:

GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost

HTTP 1.0 doesn't require the Host header. But I don't understand what
worked and what didn't.
