I recently installed Tomcat5.0.28 on XP at home. I am using JDK 1.5. I have completed all the necessary requiments. I am sure about it.... I start tomcat from command prompt using "startup.bat" and the server starts properly..
The problem is when i say "http://localhost:8080" on browser (IE), it says "cann't find the server". I checked it with Netscape also, without any luck.... Do I need to do any other setting ??
Can anybody tell me what cud be the problem. I have set CATALINA_HOME, JAVA_HOME properly.... I have been working on tomcat4.x previously on .NT/2K without any problem.... Any suggestions/solutions would be greatly appreciated...
