Understood. But I do not want to use Tomcat proxying services. I just want 
to host 8080 locally and let my ipfilter firewall block and proxy for me.

About what? This is in the Fine Manual -- see the Connector
documentation under tomcat-docs/config/:
Proxy Support

     The proxyName and proxyPort attributes can be used when Tomcat is 
run behind a proxy server. These attributes modify the values returned 
to web applications that call the request.getServerName() and 
request.getServerPort() methods, which are often used to construct 
absolute URLs for redirects. Without configuring these attributes, the 
values returned would reflect the server name and port on which the 
connection from the proxy server was received, rather than the server 
name and port to whom the client directed the original request.

     For more information, see the Proxy Support HOW-TO.

Though this isn't particularly relevant to your situation, since as
are many of the *examples* in the default server.xml, this entry is
*commented out*.
