Tomcat 5 on RHL , PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!
Hey dudes,

heres my problem .
1.Red Hat 8.0
2.Tomcat 5.5.2 alpha base distro only
3.Java2 SDK 1.4.2
4. Mozilla 1.7.3

everything is set
1. Tomcat 5.5.2 is installed and integated to use JAVA 1.4.2
( Catalina_home , Java_home all reflect the appropriate directories)

2. Mozilla has been configured to use JRE 5

./ starts Tomcat 5 ( no error or warning messages)
./ stops Tomcat 5 ( no error or warning messages)

Yet after tomcat starts , when i type in or localhost:8080
it simple keeps giving me this error-----> " the connection was refused when attempting to contact ...", i even tried connecting from a different machine using the orginal IP ADDY...that too gives teh same error...

WHAT AM I DOING WRONG???this is my first trial with tomcat ...i tried reading all that i could!!!!!

am i supposed to have a httpd runnning on the machine since i am assuming and read that tomcat itself works as a webserver!

i even checked /etc/rc.d/rcsysint ../network.../hosts all reflect localhost!!!
i even pinged ..that works too!!!!


peace dudes!

Does the catalina.out or catalina.log file in <tomcat home>/logs add any useful information? It sounds like tomcat isn't up and running, maybe there's some error that's getting logged but not output to the console.

Have you checked on the proxy server settings?
I also had encountered that problem, and I found out that I have not put "localhost" or "" under the "No proxy" list. Note that my PC is inside a network and connects through the internet via a proxy server. It seems that the resolution of the address (this includes was done by the proxy server, and not my machine.

I don't know about Mozilla, but right now I am using firefox 0.8. I hope that the interface would be similar. If not, this is usually found somewhere near proxy settings tab.

To put under the "No proxy" list in firefox 0.8:

Tools -> Options -> General -> Connection Settings -> No Proxy for:

Then put ",localhost" on the text box (without the quotes).

Tell me if it works :)
