Subject restrict to localhost
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2005 17:29:04 GMT
I have a setup where apache is proxypassing to tomcat, and we only want 
tomcat to bind to locahost:8080, as all authentication is currently done 
in apache.

Unfortunately tomcat binds to all interfaces, so someone can get past 
that by going right to port 8080.

How do I tell tomcat to bind only to localhost?
