Can you go to the server and bring up the page with "localhost"?

https://localhost:8333/ui/

Have you checked the tomcat logs to make sure it's starting up OK?

Check the latest log and see if it has recent dates inside as each line of the log should have a time stamp.  If not, make sure logging is turned on in the config file and see where they are supposed to go.  Maybe that's not the right directory.  I believe that is the default, but you can change it.  Also, you will have some kinds of log that will show it starting up and should have some "info" about processes/processing.
