Subject Re: Slow shutdown in tomcat

Look at your server.xml   You will find the references to the used ports 
I think the one you are looking for is the shutdown port at either 8005 or 

Have your firewall allow connections to this port from the IP defined as 
localhost as well as the IP of the machine if not the same. I believe it 
uses localhost or to make this connection. Some firewalls break 
all connections to ports and some only challenge the connections from other 
machines. Yours seems to control all connections.

There is also the possibility that I am way off base.
