I have a web site(a very basic one) and have been practicing with servlets. http://snydb2001.freeservers.com/ When the user clicks on "Try out my first servlet", it works, but when they go to click enter after typing in their name, my browser states that the web site can not be found. When I have the web site set to http:/localhost:8080/... that works. My problem is how do I allow OTHERS to access it since not everyone can go to http:/localhost:8080 as this would be the URL for their own machine....no???
cool.. you are getting there.. one way for others to get to your page (on your machine) would be if you had a DSL line to the internet and a static ip. Otherwise, it would be next to impossible. Now you have to graduate to hosting your site on a webserver that is permanently hooked up to the internet.. Check out www.mycgiserver.com and www.webappcabaret.com These are two of the good servers out there supporting jsp/servlets Get yourself an account and then if you need help uploading/configuring your account, post back here. Before you ask, you will have to ftp your files (*.html, jsp, .class) to mycgiserver and copy them there using a browser based file manager to webappcabaret [This message has been edited by Mak Bhandari (edited April 26, 2001).]
