Subject Re: Can Geronimo be used in a standalone mode?
Date Wed, 20 Dec 2006 02:02:12 GMT
So it can be used in standalone mode...great. I have been using it as a 
localhost for a couple of days now.
How do I get it to respond to the outside world?

In other words, I want to be able to type in the IP address given to me 
by my ISP and have Geronimo respond.
