Subject Newbie: Installing Axis2 with Tomcat 5.5.7 for external use (public URL)
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2007 23:11:08 GMT
I apologize ahead of time. This may be a Linux or Tomcat question, but I
thought I would see if anyone else had experience with this. I don't
have much experience with Tomcat. I don't own the Linux machine that
Axis2 and Tomcat are installed on so I have to rely on the admin to
restart Tomcat and set up links, configurations, folders for me. 

I have been given a folder at: /applications/myexternalfolder . I have a
public URL: that shows whatever HTML files, etc
is in that folder. In addition, there is a link in
/applications/Tomcat/webapps/myexternalfolder that points to
/applications/myexternalfolder .

I am able to install Axis2 with Tomcat 5.5.7 on a Linux machine and
access the services and list services page internally, say using this
internal URL: . At the
moment, the admin won't allow the axis2 folder in webapps to be exposed
externally for security reasons. 

Is it possible to access my services using the public URL (i.e. ) and if so, how can I
do this? I have tried creating a folder in
/applications/myexternalfolder/axis and linking that to the axis2 folder
in Tomcat/webapps but that didn't quite work as expected. I also tried
setting the 'hostname' and 'httpFrontendHostUrl' parameters but no
