I think I saw something in those docs about not only does the ping have to work, but you have to have installed the loopback driver last.

netstat -a for me shows a number of things on 8080, none of which looks like a listening server. But it must be. I think. One line just shows my computer, listening, I'm guessing that must be it. The others look like I'm attaching to 8080 on a proxy server, for my various IE windows. So do you see anything on 8080?
