Tomcat service on Windows 7 - Cannot access from remote computer

I have Windows 7 Professional on Dell Vostro 230.

I installed 64-bit Java JDK (jdk-6u22-windows-x64.exe). JAVA_HOME points to 64-bit JDK.

I unzipped Tomcat (apache-tomcat-6.0.29-windows-x64.zip) into Tomcat directory. I did not

use installer version.

I installed MySql (mysql-5.1.52-winx64.msi) into MySQL directory. Configured MySQL and

imported my app's database.

After some startup.bat changes I got Tomcat to start and to deploy my web app. The web app

connects to MySql.

Task manager indicates that both Tomcat6.exe and mysqld.exe are running in 64-bit mode.

I can access the app from a remote computer. All worked as expected.

I shutdown Tomcat.

I then installed Tomcat as a service (ran 'service install' from command prompt run as

administrator) and started service.

I can access the app from localhost but not from a remote computer.

Tried telnet [tomcatHost] 8080 - connect failed.

Spent a day looking for answers but no luck.

Anyone have any ideas?

I did not try that but I did turn the firewall off with the same result.

It turned out to be my antivirus/firewall.

The computer came preinstalled with TrendMicro Antivirus.

I checked the firewall settings but couldn't find anything.

So I uninstalled TrendMicro and installed the 64-bit client installer for Symantec Endpoint Protection, everything cleared up.

Thank you for your help.
