Hi Friends,
I am a newbie and I faced problem starting with a jsp program at home. I typed http://VC:8080/ and it would give unable to find page. VC is my machine name.This I did after I started the Tomcat in bin. Now in my home network adapter e.t.c. are not there. So I wonder if that is the source of problem.With the same path and classpath settings I tried at office and it worked.
Could someone offer insight into this issue?
For your info following are the settings in the environment variable
path=c:\jdk1.2.2\bin
classpath=c:\TOMCAT\LIB\SERVLET.JAR;c:\TOMCAT\LIB\ANT.JAR;c:\TOMCAT\LIB\JASPER.JAR; c:\TOMCAT\LIB\XML.JAR;c\tomcat\examples\web-inf\classes;

With thanks in advance,
Vikram Chandra

1. Try using http://localhost:8080/ or http://127.0.0.1:8080/ instead of the machine name. "localhost" and "127.0.0.1" are special names for the machine you are running on. If you don't have a network adapter you may not have all of the TCP/IP protocol support which is required for this to work. If even "localhost" doesn't work, you will probably need to install TCP/IP support from the installation CD.
2. To change your name on Java Ranch you need to create a whole new user. Shut down your browser, then start it up again and come back to Java Ranch. When it asks for your user name, enter your full name.
