Thank you very much Mark.
I have all the stuff setted as you descriped but I'm using a redirector of 96kb
(the one for 3.1) but it still wont work.
I think I've done the registry settings wrong, I've double checked it but
couldn't find any thing wrong with it. If have an NT server running tomcat with
IIS would you please send me a snippet of the specified registry key so that I
could make a checkup.
BTW I couldn't find the iis_redirect.reg-auto file you specified could you
please email a copy of it to me on It will be a great
help for me and my collegus!
