you might give more information for some help - this question doesnt make sense. Do you want your server to be available on the internet? Tomcat is the web server and it will no doubt be connected to your "IP" - if you know you ip address then try connecting to it now with :8080 appended. as well as you ip addres, your localhost address is mapped to 127.0.0.1 a "loopback" address that just uses you local network to connect the computer to itself. If yuo want to change the port that tomcat uses you need to look in the server.xml file within your /config folder inside the tomcat installation. Somewhere in there you can change 8080 to 80 which will mean you can just use localhost. If you now know you ip address try that without a number.
