Im having diffulties to configure tomcat(5.5.17). Only my workstation(where tomcat is instlled) can see the applications that are running. I want others on the network to see tomcat's app by http://myipadd/apps as url but didn't work. Please help me on cofiguring tomcat so that others can see the apps..

The problem is probably not Tomcat but the way your system appears to the network. For example, you may have a firewall that blocks incoming connections to port 80.

What is your operating system? Do you have a network administrator who could help?

windows xp pro is my os.. my tomcat is installed on my machine for testing pusposes..if the port 80 is block by the firewall then ur network admin will have the responsibilty of viewing the application when we get to install the tomcat to our server (linux platform). am i right?

I'm unclear as to what the question is! I think you better talk to your network administrator.

If you set the port for Tomcat to 8081,and using the url http://myipadd/apps, nothing is going to happen because your colleague's web-browsers do not know to look on that port, they will be looking on port 80 of your machine. Have them try to connect to http://myipadd:8081/apps (this works on my server as long as I open that port on the firewall). If there is a firewall or some other form of protection on the network you won't be able to do this either because all uneeded connections will hopefully be blocked. I hate to be too much more detailed because I don't know if this is on a workstation at work or at home. If it is at work, I would hate to have you open up your system to outside intrusion and have you end up losing your job or something.
