Subject Re: Client browsers can't find Tomcat page
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2005 19:09:19 GMT
Localhost is the same as the IP of the machine you are on (unless overridden 
in the host files. So on that you would not be able to get an answer unless 
you were running something on the client machine.

As for server name, you may wish to try the IP of the server and see what 
the result is.

But since you are running on XP sp2 my guess would be an issue with the 
firewall. When you applied the sp I bet that Tomcat was on the machine. When 
you did the new install XP blocked the app as it has a new name. Try as a 
test to disable the firewall. If that works then enable it and setup an 
exception for the new Tomcat OR for port 8080. My guess is you will have to 
do the port.

XP sp2 does not like upper ports being open unlike 80 which it knows what it 
is doing.

Welcome to sp2.
