I have a problem stopping tomcat on my computer. Whenever I run from the bin directory, I get the following:
[ivanjouikov@ned bin] $ ./
Using CATALINA_BASE: /usr/local/jakarta/build
Using CATALINA_HOME: /usr/local/jakarta/build
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/jakarta/build/temp
Using JAVA_HOME: /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_04
Catalina.stop: Connection refused Connection refused

at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.stopServer(
at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(
[ivanjouikov@ned bin] $

Btw tomcat IS running while I attempt that. I have no clue what's going on. Please help!

What it sounds like is that the shutdown script is not using the right port - I have no idea how this could come about.
Incidently, since this is Tomcat specific, you should have posted in the Tomcat forum.
