Telnet isn't the way to test it - try a wget or curl and check that you get some html back.

Although, the "connected" message alone tells you that it is running and listening.  If it wasn't running, you wouldn't connect.

You should read the application log to see what it's doing - <jira home>/logs/atlassian-jira.log

 

`wget` returns html

There you go, it's running fine.

In fact, it's responded with a setup page, so there's no need to look at the application log as that tells you it's working - your problem is with your browser not connecting.  You'll need to fix that.
