Hi All,

I am new to this thus need expert advise on it. I have just setup IIS6.0 on windows2003 and in the same box, I have apache tomcat 5.5. To allow proxying from iis to tomcat, I have downloaded and configured tomcat-connector JK2. I have successfully configure to the below setup:

BUT one of my virtual URL is a htm+jsp website in ...Tomcat5.5\webapp\test
In my IIS 6.0, I have the home directory set to ...Tomcat5.5\webapp\test with jakarta virtual directory created to handle all the jsp files. In my tomcat /conf/, I am stuck!!! I do not know how to setup in such a way whereby it will show instead of I have tried to change the appBase to \webapp\test and it return HTTP 400 when I test.

Please help to advise how can I configure my proxy from IIS to tomcat in order to strip out the directory, ie. instead of

Please help...urgent
