hi all of you. My name is chaitanya. recently i discovered a problem while using tomcat6.0 web server.
previously i used apache geronimo application server. i was able to connect to the server from a different computer on the network while using geronimo server.
now i migrated to apache tomcat6.0 server. when i am trying to connect to the server using a different computer on the network, i am un able to connect to it.
I thought that there is a problem in the network connection. I checked the network connection its fine. I once again installed geronimo server and tried to connect to the server. I was connected. therefore i discovered that there is no problem with the network connection.
once again i tried to connect to tomcat server from different computer. it is not getting connected.
i have changed the port number from 8080 to 8081. but i am unable to access the server from different machine
i have turned off the windows fire walls in sever machine. now i am able to connect to it through a client system. but this is too risky process. the server machine will be at risk. is there any other way to do this one.
please anybody guide me
sir i have searched in web, i have found the related information but it is not working.
in windows web site i have found some information.
there it was said to- go to firewalls settings>exceptions>add port> then open the 80 port. i have done as it was described. but it is not working sir.
