Try to run Tomcat as a background process by using the ampersand symbol ("&").
Let's say that you start Tomcat by executing a shell script called
"". If so, then you might try this:

        # &

The ampersand tells the operating system to run the file as a
background process, which means that that process should continue to run even
after you close your telnet connection. If that does not work, then try running
it as a user other than yourself, perhaps as the root user or the user "nobody"
(many people run Apache as the user nobody). Or you could create a user named
"tomcat" and run Tomcat using that user's account and name.
