we have WebSphere 4.0.5 installed on separate machine behind a firwall and IBM HTTP Server before the firwall. we have installed WebSphere web module that has the context root '/' so we can call it from the WebServer like http://localhost:80/
the question is how can i call the web server adminstration interface ??? that i was using the same url to access it before installing the application with con text root '/' on the WAS.

The webserver admin service needs to be running in the first place. This is a separate daemon and needs to be started separately.
If it is IBM HTTP server, this is called adminctl.
This server will also be listening on a diff. port.
And most prob. would need a login as well.
More documentation can be found in any decent redbook on the topic

I have another probelm here, the infrastucture team is depending on sending http request to the webserver as http://localhost:80/ to check the availabity of the web server (service is currently running) while this request is passed to WAS to check the status of the application takes context root '/'. so if the application is currently off that request will not return status code 200.
the second question here: what is the http request can be used to check the availabity of the webserver (IBM HTTP Server)??

You need to set up a virtual host definition in HTTPServer and set the doc root to that of IHS.
e.g
<VirtualHost 127.0.0.1>
ServerName localhost
DocumentRoot "c:\ibm\HTTPServer\htdocs"
</VirtualHost>
