Look in conf/server.xml file. There are all settings for tomcat.

You will run into difficulties assigning any port under 1024 (assuming this is a Unix-ish OS), because those ports require root privileges. In that case you may need to front Tomcat with Apache.

Looks like the change should be from 80 to 8080, which is really strange. I suppose 8080 is by default.
Are you using web server with tomcat?
