Tomcat, IIS, Virtual Directory, ...

moved this topic from "Questions" to here because I think that this is the better place ...

Hello Guys,

I just finished installing Tomcat on my Windows Webserver 2003. I am able to access the Tomcat home page using http://localhost:8040 (i need 8080 to be left unmodified).
Tomcat is installed in C:\Tomcat. A virtual directory (Tomcat) that points to c:\Tomcat\bin\win32\i386\ was created as well. An ISAPI_Filter (Tomcat) which points to file c:\Tomcat\bin\win32\i386\isapi_redirector2.dll also. I copied the directory JForum as subdirectory to c:\Tomcat\webapps.

The problem is now that I am not able to access the JForum\install.jsp installation routine.

I have some problems in understanding the relationship between the ISAPI-Filter, virtual directory, workersFile and other settings.Can anyone give me a hint where I can find an installation guide or other documentation that would help to solve this problem?

If there is another topic that matches my problem it would be ok as well to show me how to find it.

I am looking forward to your reply,

Andree

Hello,

meanwhile I was able to start the installation routine from the local server (http://localhost:8040/jforum/install.jsp). Maybe I was just too impatient and should have wait a few minutes more ...
I am able to configure the forum in any way I like (locally) but i am not able to access it from outside. I am only able to access the forum using the Apache interface which pops up after entering http://localhost:8040 into the IE. The server I am using is a Windows Server 2003 and I have physical access to it. Everytime I enter the address of my forum (http://syncro-concept.dyndns.org:8040/jforum) i am getting the following message:

Die Webseite kann nicht angezeigt werden.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance,

Andree

I'd look at router configuration / firewall settings maybe. The router has to forward the requested port to your local computer in the network (NAT).

Also it might be that your server is only listening to localhost. Maybe you need to add your dyndns addy there too (probably IIS, the server that you set as proxy)

I am desperate ...

It is still not possible to access the forum installation on my server from outside.
I was looking for guidelines to install Tomcat and Java on a windows server 2003 machine.
I found a couple of it and tried to follow it. But they all are nearly the same. Thus the result is the same as well: it does not work.

I installed Apache Tomcat 6.0.18 Server, JRE 6 and isapi_redirect-1.2.27.dll. I modified the registry settings, installed isapi_redirect.dll as ISAPI-Filter and added a new Web Publishing Service (isapi_redirect-1.2.27.dll as well). I created the workers.properties and uriworkermap.properties files, placed a isapi_redirect.properties file in the isapi_redirect.dll directory and modified all mentioned settings. Nothing works. There is not even written a log file in the isapi_redirect.dll directory although i defined a lo in the isapi_redirect.properties file.

I also checked the port forwarding at my router. Port 8080 is forwarded to the HTTP Server that delivers my homepage correctly.

Something seems to be basically wrong.

Can anyone give me help ?

Thanks in advance,

Andree

oh, oh, oh,

shame on me,

it is very embarrassing ...

The guidelines are perfect. The only thing I did not concern was the windows firewall.

I stopped it and now it works.

Thanks a lot,

Andree
