Hi, I'm trying to install tomcat 6 on x64-86 linux. I downloaded core tomcat package, then I unpacked it. Server starts with no error messages (using $CATALINA_HOME/bin/ Everything seems to be ok, but , I can't to connect to the welcome page . I've checked if tomcat ports are in use (netstat -ln), but only my server after start is listening.
I'm using custom port, but I've also tested 8080 with no positive results. It can't be firewall problem, I've run run my old simple server program, and I can connect to it, without any problems. But tomcat still doesn't work .

What port are you using to connect to tomcat locally?

I've tried to start tomcat on default ports 8080 - I can't connect. I've also tested other ports (11000, etc). Each port is open and not used. After tomcat starts, netstat shows that serwer is listening, but I can't connect.

I've tested all these ports, other services (for example simple echo programs) can use them without any problems
