unable to get tomcat home page displayed in browser

Hi,

I have installed jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28 on Solaris 10 server. The server is in LAN. When i try http://<serverip>:8080 from my machine, tomcat homepage is not displayed.

The error message is

" Network Access Message: The page cannot be displayed " and "Error Code: 502 Proxy Error. The ISA Server denied the specified "

But from my machine command prompt, when i telnet using

telnet <serverip> 8080

then GET / HTTP/1.0

default home page is displayed in command prompt.

Is this error related to some firewall enabled in server?

Thanks in advance,
Susmitha.

If you can see the Tomcat homepage from a telnet prompt then Tomcat is running fine. It sounds like your browser is configured to use a proxy server that can't reach your Solaris box.

I am facing another problem with tomcat.

Using putty session, i started tomcat on my server. I am able to see that tomcat is up when putty window is open.

When putty session window is closed, Tomcat is shutting down automatically.

What could be the reason...?

Thanks,
susmitha.
