I'm using Apache on Compaq Tru64. I've setup a symbolic link and it works fine for static html and gifs. When I try to access a JSP though, I get a FileNotFoundException. The JSP is stand-alone(no references to any classes). What could be causing this? Any ideas would be appreciated, because I am totally lost on this one!!

Assuming you mean Apache Tomcat - do the example servlets and JSP that come with it work?

Yes, the demo apps work from their respective default locations. The problem happens only for custom JSPs accessed via symbolic link. The sym-link pointed path is completely ignored and the app-server is looking at the default directories under Apache/Apache/htdocs...
