You might also try creating a text file "c:\windows\hosts" with the following
line in it: localhost

A standard installation of Tomcat only tries to look up host name "localhost",
and if the DNS lookup finds it in this file, no attempt should be made to go out
to the network.

For what it's worth, I run Tomcat on a disconnected laptop all the time, and it
works fine.
