Where is the browser running ? on the same machine ?

On the Win2008 server, start the Tomcat service.
Then open a command window an enter the command :

netstat -aobn -p tcp

After a while, you should get a display with lines like this :

TCP               LISTEN         956

Note all the lines mentioning [tomcat5.exe] in the last position, and the word LISTEN in 
the 4th column (the other lines show other programs, and do not matter here).

In the first column is always "TCP".
In the second column, it shows all the IP addresses and ports on which Tomcat is listening

for connections.
For example above, it shows that Tomcat is listening on the IP address "", and port

8080. "" is a special address, which means "all IP addresses of this machine".

What does it show on your system ?
