    help in making tomcat port 8080 accessible


    I have installed the latest tomcat server on fedora core 2, and ran the startup script and all went well.

    When I try to access it using an address like this:

    http://ipaddresshere:8080/

    I get a cannot found server error message. I have apache running separately also on the same server and I am able to access that successfully.

    do i need to amend the /etc/services file? or anyone other relevant files in the /etc/ directory.

    Esssentially i need to make that port accessible i think.

    Thanks for your help

    if you have a router you must unblock port 8080 through your router interface (if you have a linksys 192.168.1.1 should get you there in a browser... user and pass are admin). if you have a firewall you must unblock it there also.

    that appears to be the case

    I have got rid of apache, and changed the port number of tomcat to 80 and it works fine. I do not have control of the router as it is a rented dedicated server but i think too that it is not forwarding http requests unless the port number is 80
