Subject Running Tomcat 3.2.3 (or 4.0) on a multi-homed machine.
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2001 19:43:52 GMT

Is there a way to run Tomcat 3.2.3 or 4.0 so that the server will listen 
on a specific host interface (IP address)?

For example, my machine has two IP addresses ( and I would like to run two instances of Tomcat on port 80 
each one listening on one of the interfaces respectively. I specifically 
don't want to use Virtual Hosting.

The server.xml file on both versions of Tomcat seem to take a port 
parameter but not a host parameter.

One way to solve this of course is to use Apache as a front for Tomcat. 
But I would like to use Tomcat as a standard alone web server if at all 
this is possible.

Thanks for any help.
