If you're on SuSE, you probably have the firewall running. Try checking it in
YAST and, if necessary, open up port 8080.
ps aux | grep -i tomcat should definitely show a process, if it's not there,
something else is also wrong.
In $CATALINA_HOME/logs there should be a file called catalina.out, which also
might have some information about what could be the problem.
