I upgraded my Tomcat from 4.1 which was working great to 5.0.28. Now I am unable to access any JSPs. I get the following error:

HTTP Status 403
Access to the specified resource () has been forbidden.

I can't get into the Tomcat manager or Administration because even that gives me a 403.

I tried adding the following line to \conf\catalina\localhost\mycontext.xml under the context tag:

<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve"

but it did not help. I've tried looking at the policy file catalina.policy but did not find anything of interest. Any ideas how to solve this problem. Thanks
