Subject Re: Question regarding running Tomcat 7.0.57 offline
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2018 18:34:44 GMT
Hi John,
I'm not overly familiar with OSX, but does ifconfig show a loopback device
when you're not connected? Can you not create a dummy NIC and statically
assign some address or something, then let tomcat bind to that?
You may have to add something to the hosts file for it to work, perhaps
it's hanging on DNS resolution.
