404 does not indicate a security configuration problem, it indicates that the requested URL could not be resolved. The most common reasons for that are things like

1. The webapp failed to start (this what probably happened).
2. The URL wasn't spelled right.
3. The webapp started, but not at the context path you used for your URL.

The Tomcat log file (catalina.out) should be able to help.
