Tomcat installation

I managed to get Tomcat working at home and am now trying at my office, and am not getting the same results. When I run %CATALINA_HOME%/startup.bat I get the following:
Using CATALINA_BASE: Z:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.0\
Using CATALINA_HOME: Z:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.0\
Using CLASSPATH: Z:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.0\bin\bootstrap.jar:c:\j2sdk1.4.1\\lib\tools.jar
Using JAVA_HOME: c:\j2sdk1.4.1\
And then I get a DOS window pop up and then disappear very quickly. And thats it.
Do I have to make any other changes because I am connected to a LAN?

You'll want to have a look at the logs - tomcat/logs.
There will be some clues in there to help you out...

There are no files in the logs directory to look at.

Double-check your installation with this

You might also try launching Tomcat from an existing DOS session. This will keep your window open and you should be able to see what the problem is.
I agree. Here's the link:
