connection refused when attempting localhost:8080

Can someone tell me why I am getting this error "connection refused when attempting localhost:8080" when I try to access tomcat using fireworks. How do I correct it

is the service running on the correct port? See if the service is running with 'ps -ax'. If it is running, is the port blocked. what is the output of 'iptables -L'. This info will help to get us started.

Are you listening on port 8080? To check, run:
$ netstat -an | grep LISTEN
