Hi Everybody,

I have installed tomcat 6 in my laptop. I have added tomcat 6 with eclipse IDE.

My tomact works fine inside eclipse, i am able to run the application with both internal (IDE - browser) and external browser(Internet Explorer).

When i start tomcat externally from tomcat_home\bin folder - i get server started message
but when i try to run admin console in browser i get 404 error - requested resource is not available
I have configured tomcat admin console with port number 5000


I have also have jboss in my laptop (jboss is in stop status)

i tried using netstat command in command prompt
i find
TCP 5000 connection is established

please help out.

After googling "404 Error" , I am reading wiki. It says,
...the client was able to communicate with the server

that indicates we need not go to the detail of netstat command to check if our server has any problem. Forget admin console(I suppose it is manager console in Tomcat) first, do you see a default localhost tomcat page? Check if you are missing tomcat configuration settings, there should be xml files to configure users and provide there passwords and roles.
