Hi,
I installed Tomcat & am trying to check the settings. I am unable to get the homepage of Tomcat when i try to fire http:\\localhost:8080. I am using the Netscape Browser.
The classpath seems OK as i am able to compile servlets but am unable to run them.
Any help is highly appreciated.
Thanks

The Startup.bat and Tomcat.bat files used to start Tomcat have @echo off at the start. Comment this line out and you may be able to see errors being reported.
The usual problem everybody has with WIndows 98 is insufficient Environment space. The startup routines do a lot of fooling around to set environment variables that are quite lengthy.
Modify your MSDOS console settings to use more environment space.

Hi,
I commented the echo off lines in the Startup & Tomcat batch files. When i run the startup i get a new DOS screen which closes after some time & i get back the original DOS screen with C:\ prompt.
I am not getting the Out of Env Space message.
Thanks

Thanks William !
I could finally sort it out. I was a combination of problems associated with classpath/jar files/etc.

Rao,
I seem to be having the same problem. Could you tell me what you did to get rid of it ?
