Tomcat IIS Connector problem - please help

I have been trying to run my (or any) JSP application from IIS using the Tomcat connectors following these instructions:

For instance, when I try to run http://localhost/jsp-examples/jsp2/el/basic-arithmetic.jsp I get the following error in the log:

HttpExtensionProc::jk_isapi_plugin.c (920): could not get a worker for name ajp13

I don't understand why it's trying to look for a worker named ajp13 when the only worker I specified is ajp13w.

I am using: IIS5, Windows XP SP2, Tomcat 5.0.28, ISAP-Redirect 1.2.8

I am trying to at least get the examples that come with Tomcat running. Here are my config files:

# -
# This file provides minimal jk configuration properties needed to
# connect to Tomcat.
# The workers that jk should create and work with

# Defining a worker named ajp13w and of type ajp13
# Note that the name and the type do not have to match.

# -
# This file provides sample mappings for example
# ajp13w worker defined in


# Now filter out all .jpeg files inside that context
# For no mapping the url has to start with exclamation (!)

I placed isapi_redirect.dll in tomcat/bin as documented and I placed the above .properties file into tomcat/conf. I set all the variables in the registry, added the filter in IIS Administation Console, etc., so I have no idea why this is happening.

I had the same problem,in the registry for worker_file I used the same name of the jk 1.2.8 kit
then I changed it to

and it worked for jsp pages but not for servlet so I tried to change something in the file
and it stopped working even for jsp pages
I have:
os w2000
IIS 5.0
jre 1.5.0_01
jk 1.2.8
tomcat 5.5.7
browser ie 6.0

If i find the problem I'll tell you, please do the same

I finally got it to work with JK2. It seems that JK 1.2 does not work with Tomcat 5. The setup for JK2 is a lot simpler as well, as it comes with a script which configures everything.

Beware of JK2 no longer supported by the Apache group

If you are going to production and have a choice. Do so with open eyes

Yes I know that but this is the only one that works. We have tested it and it works fine for our relatively simple needs.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
