Subject RE: IIS and Tomcat on different physical servers

I don't think you can do it that way, Oyvind. Is there a reason you don't have Tomcat running
on the IIS server?
You might try changing the port configuration in the server.xml file from port 8080 to port
80 then try it.

Subject: IIS and Tomcat on different physical servers

I am trying to get IIS and Tomcat to communicate on two different machines.
With no luck.

It seems like almost all questions on the web regarding IIS/Tomcat asssume
the two servers 

run on the same machine. In my case, not.


On Server1:

Windows 2000 Server SP4 (with IIS v. 5 I assume...)

JK2 v. 2.0.3


On Server2:

Windows 2000 Server SP4

Tomcat 5.5

Java 1.5.0_06-b05


On Server1:

"http://myserver1/jkstatus" seems to work fine


On Server2:

"http://myserver2:8080/reptilcom/knife/doit" works fine


When I try to reach Tomcat from Server1, like:

"http://myserver1/reptilcom/knife/doit" I get the following debug/error
mesages in the Event Log for JK:

Error: [jk_isapi_plugin.c (496)]: HttpExtensionProc worker is NULL

Debug:  [jk_isapi_plugin.c (491)]: HttpExtensionProc could not get a worker
for name lb_ms_rc

Debug:  [jk_isapi_plugin.c (482)]: HttpExtensionProc started

Debug:  [jk_isapi_plugin.c (429)]: HttpFilterProc check if
[/reptilcom/knife/doit] is pointing to the web-inf directory


On server1 no Java and no Tomcat Server are installed. I have assumed all
the time that that's OK.

Am I right? If not, what's Java/Tomcat doing on Server1?



My configuration files are as follows:







[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Apache Software Foundation\Jakarta Isapi

"serverRoot"="C:\\Program Files\\Tomcat 5.5"



"workersFile"="C:\\Program Files\\Tomcat 5.5\\conf\\"





info=Scoreboard. Required for reconfiguration and status with multiprocess

file=C:/Program Files/Tomcat 5.5/work/anon.shm


# Defines a load balancer named lb. Use even if you only have one machine.




host=<my correct octets>



# define the worker











info=Status worker, displays runtime information



info=The Tomcat /jkstatus handler
