My ubuntu 10 server is currently configure to only accept port 80 requests from a specific IP address.  How do i change it to allow all port 80 (inside & outside) requests through?

Ubuntu use sfw as the graphical interfaces manage iptables.
Iptables -L
To get the current Iptables rules.
iptables -I INPUT 5 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
Is the raw rule to allow port 80 connection from outside the system.
You may have to make a port forward rule on your external router to the Ubuntu system.

how does shorewall relate to your system?

I.e. is it the front door and you want to grant access to a room within the house?

please post the output of iptables -L --line-numbers from the system to which you want to grant access.
Then you have to still configure the external router/firewall to pass traffic on a specific port to a specific system/port on the inside

Could you also run
lsof -i:5632
does it report that there is a process that is listening on that port?
