Installed Jenkins on a Debian Server and unable to connect on any port

Question

I installed Jenkins on a Debian server and everything seems to have worked fine.

It says Jenkins is running and I am able to start and stop it using (/etc/init.d/jenkins start).

However I am unable to pull it up on a browser using any port for example 8080 or some other port as it says unable to connect.

What can I do to trouble shoot this further? I was thinking that the port may have been blocked but then I use to have another application that ran fine on port 8080 (since uninstalled)

Thanks

Jenkins is probably configured to listen on 127.0.0.1 by default, instead of your public interface. To check this, run: netstat -anp | grep 8080'. If the line that comes up shows 127.0.0.1:8080 you need to adjust the address Jenkins listens on. You can find more info on that at https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Starting+and+Accessing+Jenkins
