I have a Vista machine stoked with maximum memory. The following has occurred a couple of times now.

I downloaded and successfully installed Tomcat6. This resulted in a Tomcat icon placed in the system tray at the lower right in Windows, which allows me to stop and start Tomcat as needed.

Now, I reboot my machine. When back at the Windows desktop, the Tomcat icon is not in the system tray. So in order to start Tomcat I click on tomcat6.exe found in Program Files>Tomcat6.0>bin. This opens a command line window which displays a bunch of messages ending with "INFO: Server startup in 93 ms". Now, when I open a browser and go to http://localhost:8080/, nothing happens. I never get to the Tomcat admin page. Windows just says "Connecting...".

Note that this behavior does not happen after installation. This happens only after a reboot of the machine.

Can anybody tell me what I am missing? Do I need to set some property or setting someplace in order to get Tomcat to open and run for me without a hassle?

Thanks to all for your assistance.;
I don't like that guy. The tiny ad agrees with me.
