This is probably way to late to help you but:

Did you install TC 5.5 as the Windows Installer Service? If so, TC can be started and stopped from the windows services menu (I only know this because I didn't want it installed as a service!). If you istalled the core from the .tar or .zip, then you should have the startup.bat and shutdown.bat scripts.

newbie, please be gentle.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us in the JSP forum, but there
are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are
required. Please take a look at the
JavaRanch Naming Policy and
adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

You can change it here
