Default Can't access the MyDNSConfig page

I followed the installation instructions for "Installing MyDNS & MyDNSConfig 3 On Fedora 10" and all seemed to go fine with the initial configuration. I only made one change from the defaults:

Full qualified hostname (FQDN) of the server, eg server1.domain.tld [localhost.localdomain]:

I choose to enter what will be the fully qualified domain name instead of taking the default.

So once the install completed I checked to make sure I could access
HTML Code:
locally which came up fine however from a different computer I tried accessing via IP and by hostname:8080 but receive browser error:

The connection was reset

Interestingly enough I get to the generic Fedora test page if I drop :8080. So I'm fairly confident that the issue is either firewall related or has something to do with choosing the FQDN at setup.

I set SELinux to disabled for the moment and rebooted and added a firewall rule for port 8080. Below is the output of iptable -L:

[root@ns-srv1 ~]# iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         
ACCEPT     all  --  anywhere             anywhere            state RELATED,ESTABLISHED 
ACCEPT     icmp --  anywhere             anywhere            
ACCEPT     all  --  anywhere             anywhere            
ACCEPT     tcp  --  anywhere             anywhere            state NEW tcp dpt:ssh 
ACCEPT     tcp  --  anywhere             anywhere            state NEW tcp dpt:http 
ACCEPT     tcp  --  anywhere             anywhere            state NEW tcp dpt:webcache 
REJECT     all  --  anywhere             anywhere            reject-with icmp-host-prohibited 

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         
REJECT     all  --  anywhere             anywhere            reject-with icmp-host-prohibited 

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination
Please let me know what else I can provide to get this fixed.
