TomCat Playing Nicely with .NET

Hi All,

I am a very new beginner (CIS student). My java prof required us to install TomCat 4.1.31. No problem. Then another prof required us to install Microsoft's IIS (ver.?) and asp.NET 1.1. Neither seemed to know or care how one affected the other. Well, I lost TomCat.

First of all, a HUGE THANK YOU to you all. It took some time, but this forum had all the answers I needed to view the startup.bat errors and solve the problem by changing the port. TomCat is back up and running!

I haven't even tried anything in .NET yet, but I'm wondering whether this will just be a constant headache. Is it difficult for them to play nicely together? With XP as my OS, would it help to install one under a different user?

The key problem (is probably) that you have two pieces of software that want to serve web pages.

IIS would run on port 80 by default, and Tomcat can be configured (and perhaps has been?) to do the same.

The answer is to probably turn off the 'automatic' part of both servers. When you need to use Tomcat, just start it with the shortcuts in your Start Menu, or you can even start the Service manually.

Same with IIS.

And just don't run them both at the same time.
