Tomcat should work "out of the box" - most likely cause of your problem is that Tomcat is not really running. On windows, a running Tomcat should show up in the Task Manager process list.

1. Did you install Tomcat as a service or an application?
2. How did you start Tomcat?
3. What is your Java version?
4. What is your operating system?

Assuming Tomcat is not installed as a service, I suggest starting from a command prompt window in the tomcat ..\bin directory by executing the startup.bat. If another command prompt window opens but closes immediately tomcat is shutting down due to some error.
