Subject Can access tomcat locally but not from another machine
Date Tue, 16 Sep 2003 10:21:25 GMT
New to Tomcat and have an initial problem:
Can access tomcat locally but not from another machine

Setup is :

Two machines (Host and Client) connected to a corporate intranet

Host (Win XP) is running Tomcat 4.1.27 installed from binary distribution
Installation verified by accessing the tomcat default page using

Using ping both ways I have verified that both machines are ping'able
from each other
When accessing tomcat on Host from the Client (Win 2000) 
http://xxx.yyy.zzz.www:8080/index.jsp (actual IP adress hidden in this mail)
I get an TCP error message page : 
"There was a communication problem. The system was unable to communicate with the server."

I have no overview of the network components in use between the two machines

Suppose it is 
a network configuration problem (My company is very strict on security issues)
a tomcat configuration problem

Any suggestions ?

Geir :-)
