    Connection refused when attempting to contact localhost

    Pleeeease help!
    i've been trying to solve this for days now. I'm new to Linux, Redhat AS 4.
    I have installed Oracle, and Tomcat 4. I can only open "http://localhost:8080" once and then I get the error that says the connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost. I have checked the server.xml but I'm not really sure what to change there. We also use a proxy server here so I don't know if that also contribues to this error. I have also reformatted the machine and installed all RPMs.

    Pleeeease help me out.

    Does this server have a name or is it set just at localhost?
    Also post the output of 'cat /etc/hosts'.

    run system-config-security and then open port 8080; also add 8080 under ports to your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file and that should make things work; if you need more detail let me know

    Hi Tiberious726
    I found the system-config-securitylevel in /etc/sysconfig. Is this the one you talking about? It has " --disabled", what should I add and remove in that file exactly?

  6. #5
    oh, sorry yes i did meant securitylevel; and what you should do is open a terminal and type "system-config-securitylevel" to get it to run

    for opening a terminal look under applications>accessories (i have never used red hat's AS just thier fedora core)

  7. #6
    cat /etc/hosts
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail. localhost.localdomain localhost demobox demobox pegasus

    okay which system-config-securitylevel... there's one in /etc/sysconfig and another in /etc/pam.d. The first one has "--disabled" while the second one has this:

    auth sufficient
    auth sufficient
    auth required service=system-auth
    session required
    session optional
    session optional
    account required

    And how do I run them for they are not executables?

    type system-config-securitylevel in a terminal; that is how it is exectuted

    (RHAS might not have it... tho i am almost sure that it does)
