Subject Tomcat doesn't shutdown: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
Date Sat, 19 Jul 2003 03:49:46 GMT
It took way too long to find a solution. Others in this list have described this
problem, so hopefully this might solve it for them too.

The problem: Tomcat starts and runs fine. It listens on 8080 as usual, and does
its stuff. But when you try shutting down, you get the following error:

Catalina.stop: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

----------------------------------------

It's identical to the error you get when you try shutting down when it's not
running. But in my case (and some others in this list) it _was_ running.

Well, in my case the problem was iptables. My firewall settings were very
restrictive, and port 8005 was being blocked, which tomcat uses for shutdown. I
opened port 8005 on the firewall and all worked fine.

Hope this saves someone from all the trouble that I went through... It took me
hours, several jdk and tomcat re-installations and a visit to IRC #tomcat to
find that one out.
