What application do you have that is "Listening" on that port?
To check, switch to a cmd window and enter:
netstat /abnop TCP
and right-click Find, Up :8080
(assuming your screen buffer is big enough to contain that reply,
otherwise capture it with an output filter to a .txt file, open it in Notepad
and do an F3 find for the same string.)
For example, here is how I could see that Fiddler was ready to capture
TCP 127.0.0.1:8888 0.0.0.0:0 LISTENING 1836
E.g. the /o switch caused Fiddler's current PID to be added on the right
and the /b switch caused its Process Name to be added below the
line my Find... found.
BTW I would agree with that that you are demonstrating a deficiency
in the Diagnose Connection Problems... tool. It catches me occasionally
too, e.g. when I have rebooted while tracing with Fiddler and then try
to use IE without restarting it or without unchecking the proxy requirement.
