Subject Re: Tomcat 4.0.1 install issues
Date Tue, 13 Nov 2001 18:04:04 GMT
I had a similar problem accessing .jsp pages on a
Linux box so don't know if this will apply to W2k but
hopefully it will help.

My problem was that I (the one who starts/stops
Tomcat) did _not_ have write permission to the
$TOMCAT_HOME/work directory.  This is what Tomcat uses
to create the servlet class files for each jsp file. 
Once I changed the ownership of this directory, I was
able to access jsp pages.
