Subject war app, Tomcat, public IP and port 8080 - remote access
Date Fri, 28 Jan 2011 20:42:01 GMT

I'm using tomcat 6.0.29, Sun Java JRE 1.6.0_21 and OS is CentOS 5.5 and I'm
runnning (localhost) a war OK, through the port 8080. I have recently gotten
a Public IP (eg and I can also use my app with no problems
locally and within a LAN through the same port (eg;
the problem comes when I try to access it from outside, if I type the Public
IP I know I reach it as I have a very simple html on my server
and I can see it (ping also works OK), but then, when follow to type
":8080/myAPP" I don't have any luck; however, if I just type can see the tomcat first page (but again when I try
to go to the "manager
page" - for instance -, I have no luck.

I have also checked if this port is opened, through iptables and a firewall
GUI, and there was no rule or exception, but I explicitily add it to be
opened. I also opened this port on my router (thomson TG585 v7). I suspect
there is something missing in the server.xml which I have not modified since
I installed tomcat.

Here's my server.xml in case you guys need to take a look at it

Any guidance will be appreciated.
