I'm trying to get my site working on a Windows XP machine. It is currently working on a Windows 2000 machine.
I'm running tomcat v4.04
When I enter the URL for the site, Windows pops up a dialog box asking me to enter a User name and password. Why is it doing this and how do I stop it? No username or password that I can think of get me past the dialog. After three tries a page comes up that says "Unauthorized"

When you installed Tomcat on the XP system, could you see the normal Tomcat homepage, examples, and documentation?
I agree. Here's the link:
