Subject RE: Tomcat 5.5 on Windows Server 2008
Date Thu, 27 Jan 2011 17:50:14 GMT
Mark is correct below.  It is an IPV4 vs. IPV6 thing.
It's a known issue if using the native libs.
If you do not specify an IP address in the <connector> tag, then APR will only listen
on IPV6.  If you disable the APR library (native) then it will work as expected, that is,
it will listen on both "" and "[::]:0".
If you only need IPV4, you add 'address=""' to the connector.
It's been covered on this list previously - several times.  I am not positive if a bugzilla
entry has been created for this.
