My question is pretty much in this line of issue. Simply, when doing
netstat -an|grep listen|grep <port>.
and there is no output (prompt returned without any results) what does that mean?

Those ports had been registered in the /etc/services of the server.

Kindly shed some light on this in easy English 101 Smilie

That's upercase "LISTEN" or "grep -i listen".

Use lsof to find out if the port is in use and what using it.
Code:
lsof -i :8080

If the port is in use, lsof will return the PID.
