Fresh installation of jira standalone on fedora24 fails to start

[Description]

Fresh installation of JIRA (atlassian-jira-software-7.1.9-x64.bin) is failing to load on an instance of Fedora24. Catalina logs stop abruptly without providing any indication of what the failure is. Entering the ip:8080 results in the following message but the demon appears to be running as shown in the following sections. PLEASE HELP!

"Host Not Found

DNS error (the host name of the page you are looking for does not exist) or Server did not accept the connection.
Please check that the host name has been spelled correctly"

It really does look like a simple failure to find the server based on the url (whether text or IP based).  The logs look healthy, I'd expect everything to be running from them, and the error message is pointing at DNS/networking, not the server.

I dont really see the message that says JIRA can now be accessed through the browser. Logs stop after the memory usage message. I have verified that the ip address is working but ip:8080 does not work.
