I installed tomcat(5.x) on window XP. The install went fine I can see Tomact running in system tray. Now if I type: htttp://127.0.0.1:8080/webapps It prompts me for used id/password. I tried all combinations tomcat/tomcat,admin/admin, my user id on lan etc. None of them work it keeps asking me for userid/password. While installing it had asked me a user id password(i guess that was tomcat admin user id), I used that too. Nothing seems to work.
I get pop-up for connect to local as before and I keep trying all combinations of user id/password. None work. I even try to bypass proxy from tools--->internet options as suggested in one of the thread here, that also does not work.
Are you trying to connect to the Tomcat Manager or Administrator applications? If so, these are protected by security that requires that you configure Tomcat to recognize the specific roles and create user identiy and passwords that have nothing to do with your user id on the lan. The default installation does NOT provide default passwords for security reasons.
Read the documentation that is installed with Tomcat. It is all right there in your Tomcat installation.

I am just trying to access index.html placed in default directory webapps by typing http://127.0.0.1 or http://127.0.0.1/webapps. None of that seem to work. Not trying to access admin etc. Why is that pop-up promting me to logon to 127.0.0.1 coming up?
If you have created your own page that you want to look at under your webapps folder create another folder say test, under test create another folder WEB-INF, under the test folder place your jsp or HTML page. Say testpage.jsp.
Yes. I have this problem on corporate network. It works now 8080 port was being used by someone I chhanged it to 9000 it worked. How do I know available ports on my computers that can be used or are being used? [ July 02, 2004: Message edited by: Rajesh Puri ]
