I have my site working on internet and have own server , I installed tomcat and configure it on port 8090 , on the same server if I enter url "" it shows tomcat server homepage and tomcat works fine , but if from other computers if I try same url , it shows page cant be found , I checked with the firewalls but everything is ok , what should be done more with tomcat so from other systems also I can access tomcat.
I am running MS IIS server on windows 2000, is something to do with IIS to show that tomcat is java plugin for IIS ,

If you look at the �� web site you�ll find that Tomcat is NOT a web server, it is a deployment tool for development web technologies. What you might need is to install the Apache web server and then you can access your web site from anywhere.

I'm not sure what is causing your problem, but Tomcat will work fine as a stand alone web server. (Albeit, not the greatest server)
I have run it stand alone and also coupled with apache.
Are the other machines able to load your site from the IIS on port 80?
Like, I said, I'm not sure why you have this problem, but I can say the problem is not because Tomcat can't be a web server.
Good Luck
I'd be interested to know how you fix this.

other machines can access iis on port 80 , if on the server system I access "" , it shows tomcat homepage , but from anyother system , it does not work .
it shows up on server system , does it mean that it has properly configured and working as standalone server , than how to access it from other systems ,do i have to do something that tomcat can work with iis webserver or apache webserver, what to do ,
