configure tomcat with https

I am trying to configure tomcat on port 8443 using the following document

instead of changing the port to 433 i kept it as 8443.
i set the ip tables as follows
/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --destination-port 8443 -j ACCEPT

/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -s -p tcp --destination-port 8443 -j ACCEPT
service iptables save

restarted the tomcat service tomcat works on
but it doesnt on

i did a little investigation of my own using nmap and found that the port 8443 is not open instead of making changes in the firewall table

can someone help me with this

Let's see the output from $ netstat -ltn

If tcp 8443 is not listening, then check your catalina.out log for errors.
