Subject Re: Can Geronimo be used in a standalone mode?
Date Wed, 20 Dec 2006 02:10:17 GMT
It should be listening on the primary interface by default.  So if  
you are running Geronimo on the server hosted by your ISP, and the  
ISP allows traffic to port 8080, then you can simply point your we- 
browser at http://<your_ip>:8080
