I installed the Websphere application server AE 4.0 on Window2000. Everything looks OK.
I used the First Step to start the application server, it also run fine.
When I test the IBM HTTP web server, it does not run. The windows 2000 indicates that it runs automatically and is running. However, I cound to access the IBM HTTP Web server home page by issuing: http://localhost as indicated in some book.
The servlet snoop can not run using http://localhost/servlet/snoop too. However, it run fine using http://localhost:9080/servlet/snoop.
I am wondering how I can fix the problem. According to book, either the IBM HTTP server is not running or there is a communication problem between HTTP server and application server.
Does any body know how to fix a problem like this ?

Check that there are no existing services on the server at the port:80 by issuing [netstat -an] command at the command prompt, before installing HTTP server. If you are running HTTP server then this port,80 should be in Listening mode. If you don't see port number 80 after issuing netstat command, that means HTTP server is not running. Start HTTP server by issuing [net start "IBM HTTP Server"] command at the command prompt. After starting HTTP server, you shall be able to see proper request handling by typing http://localhost URL in the browser.
