Hi all,
Please explain how to run two Tomcat Instances on a single machine.
I am using windowsXP and Tomcat 5.5.

You can run two tomcats but they will have to be configured so that they don't interfere. You can have them listen on different ports or you can have them configured to only respond to specific IP addresses. See

Configuring server.xml options.
