Rethish VarmaHi,
I am having a web application and I want it to be accessible to all who are using internet when they click on a specific link in our companies products page.The application is running in Apache Tomcat 6.0 server and our company uses IIS to host the companies domain.Now this application is also deployed on the same machine and we have given the same ip and this application is not opening up while clicking on the link.instead it says error,timed out!

Is it possible to run the website and application server both on same computer and share the same IP.

Please tell me how can I make this accessible to others(remotely).

Please don't post in all uppercase letters. It's considered shouting, and thus rude, all over the 'net: KeepItDown. It's also unnecessarily hard to read.

Updated: Thanks for fixing that.

I guess your IIS would be running on port 80 by default. Your Tomcat (running physically on the same machine), must be running on some different port. When you are giving link to your application, have you ensured that the particular port is open for external access? If not, you might need to get your firewall configured accordingly.

I agree. Here's the link:
