Regarding the index.jsp issue.

Look at the WEB.XML file for that app. You can specify in the
WELCOME-FILE-LIST tag (near the end of the file in mine) a WELCOME-FILE tag
that has INDEX.JSP as it value. Then - according to the info I have - if you
don't specify a file (just the path) it will serve up the JSP file. My
example file also has INDEX.HTML, and INDEX.HTM files in the list. If you
have more than one of them in your directory I don't know which one is

  In my limited experience with Tomcat 3.1/IIS 5.0 when you specify the port
you are bypassing IIS and talking directly to Tomcat.  In order to have IIS
redirect to Tomcat on port 80 (as long as you get the green up arrow in the
IIS manager) you need to modify your file to include
the following lines (for the examples):


  This will cause Tomcat to serve up all files in the examples directory.
If you want IIS to serve up static content, you need to create a virtual
directory to point to your examples directory and change the file to tell Tomcat to serve only jsp and servlet


  The only issue I still have has to do with the default document.  If I
tell IIS that index.jsp is a valid default document, IIS will send it to the
browser without allowing Tomcat to process the page - the raw jsp is sent to
the browser.  If I don't tell IIS about index.jsp, I get a directory listing
denied page (since I have directory browsing turned off).  In this case, I
have to specify the default document.

    I hope I am right, but I think when you use port 8080, you will talk
directly to Tomcat without IIS.
    And that's not what you want.

    You should change the port from the standard website (80) to something
else (maybe 81).
    Then you can change the port of the tomcat website to 80.
    These changes have to be done in the IIS manager.
    You have to change also the file extensions from default.asp,... to
index.jsp, ...html, etc.

    Another question:
    Do you have additionally started Tomcat? The isapi.dll is only a
redirector. ;)

    Third idea:

    I created virtual directories called examples and admin which point to
\tomcat\webapps\examples and \tomcat\webapps\admin
    and it works fine for me (now!).

    If it will work, you can access the site with:

        I have the same problem. Try to add port number into your browsers
query string. For example, http://localhost:8080/index.jsp
        It will be work, but of course this is not a convenient way of
problem's solution. As far as i know this problem is character of
win2000/iis5 configuration.

          Ok, I realize that this is my third email on this topic but I'm
pretty sure I'm real close but
          missing something small.

          I followed the "how to" documentation to set up Tomcat with IIS. I
have the green arrow in my
          ISAPI filters, the jakarta virtual directory and the registry
entries. I've checked and double checked
          these. I'm running Tomcat 3.1 under win2k. I got to the point in
the "how to" where we're supposed
          to be able to run the examples. I've tried running these only to
be staring at the
          "The page cannot be found" error. Now I'm a little unclear as to
whether or not I needed to create a
          virtual directory to point to the examples directory so I tried
that, same error. I have checked access
          on both the jakarta and the examples directories they looked fine
(gave all out access on both, just
          to be sure). Now there are a few things that I thought were odd
          1) Directory browsing was turned on for the examples virtual
directory and yet I was unable to browse
              the directory. I created a temp directory pointing to the same
directory (c:\tomcat\webapps\examples)
              and I can browse going through that one. I can bring up the
index.html but, as expected, trying to run
              a jsp page it just loaded the source for the page into the

          2) Both the and files
reference ajp12 yet my tomcat.conf
              sets ApJServDefaultProtocol ajpv12. I've tried playing with
this and it didn't seem to have any effect.

          I have checked and rechecked that all the paths are correct and
they seem to be. I'm attaching the
          isapi.log file which really doesn't seem to contain a lot.
