Subject Re: cannot find server

QM thanks for your reply

the URL is . The set up wizard for tomcat server 
version 5 set up the software. I didn't make any adjustments to the 
settings. How can I check the DNS etc. as you suggested? I did try a google 
on that but it was difficult to find something I could try. How can I check 
that the tomcat server is working and is on port 8080?
When I click on the start/programs/Apache tomcat 5.0/configure tomcat 
button this brings up the 'Apache tomcat properties' dialogue box which 
always shows service status as - 'Stopped'. When I click the start button 
the 'Apache service manager' dialogue box opens which appears to start the 
Apache tomcat which shows service status as 'Started' but when I click OK 
and reopen the dialogue box the service status shows - 'Stopped'. Even if I 
leave the dialogue box open and showing service status - 'Started' then 
click on the welcome button to open the browser on the above URL and port 
8080 the message shows 'cannot find server'.

I hope I haven't been to long winded but I wanted to show a clear picture 
of what is going on.

Thanks for your help
Brian Roberts
