Subject RE: Multiple Tomcat Instances with Multiple IPs
Date Fri, 19 Aug 2011 20:49:40 GMT

It definitely started up clean; and I see why.  The existing instance is using port 9005 on
the shutdown connector.  So, everything is coming up clean--no errors in the logs.  The only
change I made was adding the address element to the Connectors.  I am using port 8005 in the
2nd instance because the 1st instance is using 9005.  When I put in the DNS name or the IP
address of the newly defined interface with the correct port in the browser, I get "page can
not be displayed".

> Since you didn't change the shutdown port on the second Tomcat instance, it would not
have started properly; you should be able to see that in the logs. Also, since you have configured
Tomcat to use a specific IP address, you must use that IP address (or its DNS equivalent)
from any client you want to access that Tomcat - even if the client is on the same machine
as Tomcat.

/etc/hosts *and* you use the what the DNS name should be. Tomcat itself doesn't care what's
in /etc/hosts, only DNS lookup does.
