Tomcat is listening on port 8080 and the standard port for HTTP is port 80.
If you only call a page like   "http://<ip-address>/examples" then the
webserver looks for a directory called examples. The http-server has
no knowledge that the resource is managed by a servlet engine. Therefore you
must complete your URL by the requested port (8080). Port 80 is a so called
"well knwon port" & need not be specified extra, but if you want to have a
very correct URL you must type in: "http://<address>:80/documentation/servlet.html".
You can use other ports than 8080 - but mostly it really makes no sense.
Have also a look to the conf-directory of tomcat and tomcat's documentation.

Betreff: tomcat and apache

I have a problem with apache and tomcat.
Everything is working fine, as long I stay on the same computer.
If I call the servelet examples or jsp from an other computer it
only work if I typ the IP-address and the port 8080.
If I call the page "normal" like  http://<ip-address>/examples
the browser always say webpage not found
I try now since two days and don't know how to solve my problem.

when I call the examples with a webbrowser on the local computer the adress
line of the browser change to

How can external computers find my servlet if the adress change to  

Thanks a lot
