Erm. You are using debian here,right?
I would kick out the option -b localhost:8080 completely.

Then go to /etc/varnish/default.vcl and change "set backend.port = 8080"
to "set backend.port = 80".

Afterwards, start using the debian startup scripts, or if you must, start
it manually with "sudo varnishd -f /etc/varnish/default.vcl -s malloc,1G
-T -a"


PS.: Apologies to everyone using a decent MUA. Mine at work is Outlook for
Mac and obviously it gets quoting completely wrong. Arrgh. What a pain.
