    Default tomcat6 installation on BT5 R3 Gnome 64bit: cannot access localhost:8080

    ok this is about installing tomcat6

    It did work when I installed it first time (and then only). Since then I could not access localhost:8080 at all. Let me run through what I have done:

    My machine:
    Linux bt 3.2.6 #1 SMP Fri Feb 17 10:34:20 EST 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Installed tomcat6 with this command:
    apt-get install tomcat6 tomcat6-admin tomcat6-examples tomcat6-docs
    Installation was ok.

    Then I started the service:
    root@bt:~# /etc/init.d/tomcat6 start
     * Starting Tomcat servlet engine tomcat6                                                                       [ OK ]
    Look at netstat output:

    root@bt:~# netstat -tunlp
    Active Internet connections (only servers)
    Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State       PID/Program name
    tcp6       0      0 :::8080                 :::*                    LISTEN      6420/java
    nmap output of
    root@bt:~# nmap -sS
    Starting Nmap 6.01 ( ) at 2012-10-17 15:48 NZDT
    Nmap scan report for localhost (
    Host is up (0.0000050s latency).
    Not shown: 993 closed ports
    80/tcp   open  http
    139/tcp  open  netbios-ssn
    443/tcp  open  https
    445/tcp  open  microsoft-ds
    902/tcp  open  iss-realsecure
    3001/tcp open  nessus
    8080/tcp open  http-proxy
    Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.29 seconds
    Now trying to access http://localhost:8080/ and it is timing out.

    Funny is that it worked once when I first installed tomcat6 for the very first time I could see "It Works" page with all the infos in it.
    Since then I cannot access it anymore.

    I have removed the tomcat6 and re-installed but I just cannot aeccess http://localhost:8080/
    I have checked my proxy setting and it's set to ignore hosts

    I really do not what else I can possibly do.
    Please someone help.

    Kind regards

    I am a bit desperate at the moment: a bit more info:
    root@bt:~# service tomcat6 status
     * Tomcat servlet engine is running with pid 1928
    root@bt:~# netstat -nlp | grep 8080
    tcp6       0      0 :::8080                 :::*                    LISTEN      1928/java       
    root@bt:~# ps -ef | grep tomcat
    tomcat6   1928     1  0 16:12 ?        00:00:03 /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/bin/java -Djava.util.logging.config.file=/var/lib/tomcat6/conf/ -Djava.awt.headless=true -Xmx128M -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -Djava.util.logging.manager=org.apache.juli.ClassLoaderLogManager -Djava.endorsed.dirs=/usr/share/tomcat6/endorsed -classpath /usr/share/tomcat6/bin/bootstrap.jar -Dcatalina.base=/var/lib/tomcat6 -Dcatalina.home=/usr/share/tomcat6 org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap start
