Ok I am embarrassed now. I followed all the installation instruction that come with the orion app server. The instructions seemed pretty straight forward. It should work like a charm. But not for me. I have tried in vain to get the default page to show up on my browser. The command java -jar orion.jar -install works fine with no errors The server starts up with java -jar orion.jar with no errors When I point my browser to http://localhost/ i get an http 500 internal server error. I have tried localhost:80 and localhost:8080 and get the same response I have jdk1.4.2 installed on windows XP. BTW I have "zone alarm" installed and have also tried without it too. Any one? Please?

Ok. give up everyone? The problem is not with orion. The problem is not with "Zone Alarm" firewall. The problem is not Windows XP. The problem is my ISP and cable modem. I found this at http://www.tek-tips.com/gviewthread.cfm/lev2/67/lev3/70/pid/779/qid/281480 "I have found thast the modem/router supplied by my ISP was blocking port 80 and was setup to do NAT to hide my computer from the internet. I resetup the modem as a bridge and the problem is corrected. You will have to confirm the setup with your ISP. Mine finally admitted that their default setup is NAT with port blocking. The relutantly pointed me to instuctions to setup the bridge (in Japanese, fortunately there were pictures of easch step). The setup will depend on the make of your modem/router." Disabling the modem works out ok for the app/web server. So I am still struggling with running a app/web server on my machine while connected to the internet. BTW .. this post may be useful in other forums too [ October 31, 2003: Message edited by: Salman Khattak ]
