I think your must check if your have firewall running  and if the port 8080 is blocked,
another point to check is the configuration of your tomcat?? o resin? what server are you  using??

Im using tomcat, under directory "conf" exists server.xml file on this file exist a block like this:

 <!-- Define a non-SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8080 -->
port="9090"               maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
               maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
               enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100"
               connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true" />

in my case i using port 9090.. then i can see: http://localhost:9090/xmlui

i hope this help..

El Pablo.
