Subject Re: newbie help please, localhost not found

Tomcat is now working for me. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.
It turned out to be the firewall as Doug suggested. When I turned off Norton
Firewall
it worked straight away. I don't understand why a firewall would affect it
though, when its not
trying to access the internet, but perhaps thats too far off topic.
Thanks again,
Dave
