Subject Re: [Solved] cheersVery basic web server hosting question
Date Tue, 31 Oct 2006 18:51:47 GMT
My problem was solved. Thank u everyone who tried to help me.
  Seems like port 80 was being blocked by my ISP, I was running tomcat on my sony vaio laptop,
seems like it has some software which is blocking the ports for anonymous requests.
  I tried in my PC and its working fine now. cheerss!!
  For people who do not have a static IP address from their ISPs can visit OR
since, they provide services changing IP address and updates your domain info dynamically.
  Thank you

  I understand the frustration, but at the same time, this is a more or 
less basic web/network administration question. You need to read your 
cable router manual for how to forward traffic to a specific port (80) 
to a specific machine on the inside of your firewall or setup your 
server system to be in the DMZ. You'll also have to learn how to 
register a DNS domain name if you haven't already and point name servers 
to the public IP port your cable router is on.

There is one point that could be considered tomcat specific. You may 
need to set proxyName and proxyPort on the connector in your server.xml 
receiving traffic from your cable router. It's mostly so the outside 
people get correct redirect responses and the links are written correctly.

if it were in the linksys manual then I would not have posted the question, I tried solving
the problem by calling the linksys tech support, also had a chat session with them, but they
don't understand the problem itself.
