That's not a real URL, so why do you mention it ?

That is a very old Tomcat.  This is not to annoy you, but just to let 
you know that some people on this list were still in programming school 
when that one was released, so not many are still here that can really 
help you.

How do you know that ?  I mean, unless I am mistaken, these two files 
will not tell you "which" Tomcat, just its hostname and port, no ?
Can you copy them here ?

Same question : how did you find this one ?

/conf/ntis/ to find the port number of tomcat

Well, this will tell you to which host and port IIS/redirector is 
sending the requests, but not really who is listening.
For that, you need the conf/server.xml of Tomcat.

So you have 2 Tomcats ?

That is still possible. Maybe the webapps *are* somewhere else.
That would be indicated in the <Host> tag inside the server.xml of the 
Tomcat that is really there (the appBase attribute).

To me at least, what you write above is a bit confusing.
How do you know that you have 2 Tomcats, and which one has which 

Since this seems to be all under Windows (yes?), if you go in a command 
window and type "net start", how many Tomcat's do you see listed ?
