8080 is the port on which Tomcat is listening for requests.
That depends on your own configuration of Tomcat.
In the server.xml file, look for the HTTP <Connector> tag, and the 'port="8080"' indicated

If there is nothing else on that system that is already using port 80 (another webserver 
like Apache httpd for example), then change this Tomcat port to be 80, save the server.xml

file,  restart Tomcat and that's it (basically).
If Tomcat does not start, look in its logfiles why, and if you do not understand it, copy

the relevant part of the log in a new email to the list.

If there is already something else on the system listening to port 80, then it is quite a

bit more complicated..
