This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I have hosted a web application on Tomcat Server(5.5) on my PC (Windows XP OS). I want it to be accessible over intranet. It is working fine when I access it from my own PC using http://localhost:8080... but it is inaccessible from other machines using my machine�s IP address instead of localhost.
First, before trying to debug anything with MSIE, shut off the "Show Friendly HTTP Errors" feature. Tools -> Options -> Advanced (tab).
I'm guessing that your machine has the Windows firewall running and isn't allowing outside access to port 8080. Try shutting it off or configuring it to allow access through the ports to which Tomcat is bound.
