Hi I've installed tomcat4.1 on windows everything worked fine service is started . Only issue is when I type http://localhost:8080 in IE it is taking long time and is unable to open welcome page. I can ping 8080 from that server any idea what's happening.. I did following for installation....

Install j2sdk
Install with all typical options, put in the E:/<name it> drive.
Add environment variable: JAVA_HOME E:/Java_2_SDK (or what ever name/path you chose)
Go to Control Panel/System
Go to Advanced Tab, click on the Environment Variables button
Add new Env Var

Install Tomcat:
Install Custom:
ExpandTomcat � install as a service and core, remove source code, documentation and Start Menu Items and Examples.
Install on E:/ remove all spaces from path
Use 8080
Browse to E:/ java jre folder
