I know that's weird, but It's the exactly what happens to me.

Firewall status:
- on -> only the "console way" is accessible from Internet (outside my
local network)
- on, with 8080 port added to "Exceptions List" (Exceptions tab in Firewall
Settings) -> both ways are accessible from Internet
- off -> both ways are accessible from Internet

> Or what exception exactly did you add ?
I went to Windows Firewall Settings window, then, in the "Exceptions" tab,
I added the 8080 port (I also named as TomcatTCP) with the "TCP" option
selected, then I added the 8080 port again (named as TomcatUDP) with the
"UDP" option selected.

After all this, two itens were added to the Exceptions List: TomcatTCP and
TomcatUDP. Then I could access Tomcat (so my app too) from global Internet
(using the router's IP).
