Subject RE: newbie help please, localhost not found
Date Sat, 06 Dec 2003 16:00:22 GMT
Hi there,

have you tried instead? That is the IP usually bound
to localhost and it might be that localhost is not resolved correctly to
same. If not, try to provide further info. For example, have you installed
Tomcat in a path containing spaces such as c:\Program Files\Tomcat. If so,
reinstall to a path without spaces.

Cheers, Jan
