Can't connect to instance console

Neither the instance console nor the "click here to show only console" work. I get:

Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at

    If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

For the love of God.. OK, let's go looking:

[root@kvm8 ~(keystone_admin)]# ps -ef | grep nova-novncproxy
nova     15122     1  0 Apr28 ?        00:01:36 /usr/bin/python2 /usr/bin/nova-novncproxy --web /usr/share/novnc/

Now let's see if that process has a listening socket on port 6080:

[root@kvm8 ~(keystone_admin)]# netstat -pln | grep 15122
tcp        0      0  *               LISTEN      15122/python2

Anyone have any guesses here? The service is running and the host believes it is listening on the correct port. This is packstack, nova 15.0.0....
