[clue] tomcat listeners

OK, I've been staring at this for a while now, it's going to make me crazy
if I don't ask for advice.  I've been following the steps at:

We're trying to get tomcat to listen for SSL connections: and I've got
tomcat working and serving pages on localhost:8080, and SSL accepting
connections on 8080
via: openssl s_client -connect localhost:8080 -ssl3

Where the whole thing just kind of falls apart is that all the reading I've
been doing suggests that once you have tomcat and SSL going, it's just a
matter of configuring the tomcat server.xml to add a listener on the
correct port

<Connector port="8443" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
               maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
               enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true"
               acceptCount="100" scheme="https" secure="true"

SSLCertificateKeyFile="/openssl-1.0.0d_rhel6/ssl/private/localhost.key" />

When the service is running, there should be a listener on the port:

[root at XXXXXXXXXXX conf]# lsof -iTCP:8080
jsvc    15886 root   41u  IPv6 492302      0t0  TCP *:webcache (LISTEN)

But I'm coming up dry every time:

[root at XXXXXXXXX conf]# lsof -iTCP:8443
[root at XXXXXXXXX conf]#

The only errors I have in the tomcat log are of no use, they're on a
different port.
I'm running on RHEL6.3

Everybody I talk to seems to think tomcat is the easiest thing in the
world, but I'll be damned if I'm not seeing it.  Advice is appreciated.
