Just a guess: Your ISP runs a transparent proxy on this port. To check
this try to see what happens if you run

telnet your.host.co.uk 8080

If telnet says that you can connect but your.host does not get a
connection attempt then there is a transparent proxy and thus you have
to the change the port to something unusual.
