I am getting at the same point as Andre - everything working fine I can see
the server is running everything in the classpath etc, but the user
authentication fails - this has to do with the default directory... of the
Servlet server not containing user.lst and perms.lst... But now the question
remains - what is the default directory of Tomcat 4.0 (Catalina) ?????

Glen Daniels previously replied on my question as such :

	"If you're using the latest versions of Axis (i.e. recent nightly
	this has been made consistent.  The files are expected to live in
	Previously it was up to the servlet engine to decide - for JRun, it
	JRUN_HOME/servers/default/.  Putting it in WEB-INF as we do now
makes much
	more sense."

So ya - let me know if you got joy with this - will report back on any

Within a servlet container, such as tomcat.

Tomcat will take care of it, as long as you have put Axis in the webapp

I was trying that myself. I could't find, so I guess it does not exist

Which means the server is running ok.

Actually, I do have one or two problems with Axis myself. I got a few 
things to work after switching to Tomcat4.0 (Catalina). I got at least 
the deployment part working, but I cannot run the stock example (user 
authentication failure).

What exactly is not working for you?
