Subject NT-Service-howto feedback
Date Thu, 07 Dec 2000 12:22:23 GMT

I've just installed Tomcat 3.2 on a new NT4 (sp6a) server with JDK 1.3.  I
followed the instructions very carefully and had success all the way...
except when I log off the machine.  I'm using the jk_nt_service.exe wrapper
to run Tomcat as a service.

If I logon (as administrator) and start Tomcat as a service (using the NT
services applet) all is well.  I can see and use  all the examples from a
remote browser accessing IIS over the network.

However if I then log off; the Tomcat service stops for some reason and
consequently remote browsing of the example pages stops as well.

My first reaction was that maybe I need to alter the default settings for
the service (e.g. run it with administrator privileges) but that had no
effect.  I shall continue to investigate but if this is a common problem
perhaps it should be mentioned in the NT-Service-howto.html file.

Finally, let me say that I'm genuinely very excited by the opportunities
Tomcat makes possible.  Keep up the good work!
