Hi ,

Can I configure two listners in a single tomcat instance.

Actually the exact requirement is that I have 5 web applications and I want that one connector should listen for requests on port 8080 for web application A,B,C and another listner should be configured for port 80 for the ohter two web applications. (D,E).

See this documentation on Tomcat HTTP Connectors. It appears that you will be able to do this by configuring one connector for each port. (Warning, I have never done this)

Let us know how it turns out.
