Subject How to make Tomcat serve/listen to one more port?
Date Thu, 19 Mar 2009 13:16:49 GMT
     (I've searched through the archive back to November 2008 but it seems
like this question hasn't been asked, so I take the risk to ask it :) )

     My short question is:  How to make Tomcat serve HTTP to one more port
(in Windows Server 2003)?

     Tomcat listens to 8080 (or 80) for HTTP.  Is it possible to make it
listen to one more port, eg 12345, to serve HTTP?  And by this, I mean it's
suppose to serve a totally different web site at this new port.

     If someone's going to ask me "why": the reason behind is that VMWare
Server 2 is using Tomcat to serve its web application.  I need to create my
own portal page to give my users more informations about the server (because
VMWare's website is purely functional).  Right now, my own solution is
install IIS6 (as I'm using Windows Server 2003) and make it serve the page.
But I think it's quite a waste of resource to run an additional IIS6; wonder
why I can't make Tomcat to serve that page.

     Yes, I had asked this question in VMWare's forum, but nobody knows the
answer.  So I think it's better asked in this Tomcat mailing-list.
