Hi, I have my application running on machine(say A) and some jsp's are accessing some service from another machine (say B).It runs fine there isn't problem accessing the url(say b:\someservice:7000 ). Now when I try to access application on machine A from some other machine (say C) the problem I m getting is that instead of looking for the url (b:\someservice:7000) it is looking that url as (a:\someservice:8080) i.e. it is looking on its local directory and has replaces the port number. Hence it is failing. The url I m reading from my properties file(on the machine where application is running). Just for information Tomcat version is 3.2.1 Can anybody help me in knowing the error i m doing? Thanks in advance.
