Hi. I have written jsp files, servlet and deployed on tomcat. From the browser, with http://localhost:8080/myapps, I manage to see the application.
I tried to access myapps with http://xxx.xx.x.x:8080/myapps from other client machine, it�s ok. There�s another application (myappb) running on the same server machine with Internet Information Services, so http://xxx.xx.x.x/myappb will show myappb.
May I ask is it possible to omit the 8080 in the address to access myapps? May I know how to do it?

thanks.

80 is a default port for HTTP server. Therefore we dont have to specify 80 with IIS server.

We can configure our tomcat server with IIS or Apache Web Server. Then we dont have to specify the port.

Find the connector running on port 80 (in your tomcat/conf/server.xml file) and change the port to 80.

If you're on a unix system, you'll run into some issues.
Non-root owned processes can not bind to ports below 1025 on Unix boxes.

Do as Ben directed. You don't need IIS or any other web server then.

Steps involved on windows running IIS.

- go to services
- stop IIS Admin
- change it to manual. So, it wouldn't get started next time
- change your Http 1.1 connector in your TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml to 80
- startup tomcat
- try http://localhost/

Thanks.
