i have loaded a tomcat(4.0.1 ) into IIS but the problem is that for showing my home page i have to type in the port number ie 8080, like http://jginrtanet:8080/welcome.jsp
or http://jgintranet:8080/ and then the jsp pages appear, infact for any JSP page i have to type in the port number, how can i avoid typing the port number, is there any way out for this

When you type in the port number (8080), you're actually talking direct to the Tomcat server without any reference to IIS, which is listening on (usually) port 80. To avoid having to do this, you have to configure IIS to forward the request it receives on port 80 from itself to the Tomcat server.

This topic is more appropriate in the Apache/Tomcat forum. I will move it there.
