Tomcat: Refused localhost:8080


Hi,

I am trying to build a Tomcat server on my Linux machine running RHEL 3. I have successfully installed/configured Apache and J2SDK 1.4

I have set the environment vars TOMCAT_HOME, CATALINA_HOME, JAVA_HOME and exported them too...

When I run the startup.sh in $TOMCAT_HOME/bin/ directory, it shows a couple of env varibales like "Using CATALINA_BASE... Using CATALINA_HOME... Using JRE_HOME (same as my JAVA_HOME)..."

Still when I try http://localhost:8080 on my browser, I get the error
"The connection was refused when attempting to connect to contact localhost:8080"

I have even disabled the firewall... Any ideas would be sincerely appreciated...

Thanks,
Manudath

what about the tomcat logs in /var/log/tomcat4/ ? can you see the tomcat java processes listed in the output of "ps ax"
