i am unable to properly configure my tomcat server. when i bring up the localhost page all it shows is
Directory Listing for:/
Tomcat Web Server v3.2.3
I think some of it is working properly. Anyone care to send me properly configured files to their Windows NT Server machine?
Thank you kindly,
Thomas

Tomcat should install just fine on NT right out of the box. How are you attempting to open the page? If you are running NT server, you undoubtedly have IIS running on port 80. Tomcat installs on port 8080 - or alternative as set in server.xml

I was not, for some reason, able to properly install and configure IIS server, so Tomcat is running from port :80 as I set it in the server.xml file. On a side note, does anyone know why my machine would throw an error of "not able to determine OS type" when I tried to install Option Pack 4 when I installed NT Server? Anyway, as I indicated before, following the instructions per http://archive.coreservlets.com/ does not work. Any solutions to this dilemma?

This really belongs in the Apache/Tomcat forum. I will move it there for you.
