Hi,

I am working on a unix machine.I have installed apache-tomcat-7.0.16.
I am able to start tomcat server.It starts and says:

Using CATALINA_BASE: /home/jainpa/MySoftware/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9
Using CATALINA_HOME: /home/jainpa/MySoftware/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /home/jainpa/MySoftware/jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /home/jainpa/NehaDiwakar/jdk1.7.0

and I am confirming with process also that tomcat is started.

Now when i am trying to ping using below command:

$ ping localhost 8080

PING 8080 (0.0.31.144) 56(124) bytes of data.
^C
--- 8080 ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 1999ms

Neha,

Some kind of firewall is blocking the request on port 8080. Probably the easier solution is to change the http port number of tomcat.

Neha,

I don't know much about unix. However related to your problem I was going through net, and I found the following link, probably this might help you.
