I have a jsp page that calls a database and gets a series of hyperlinks after extracting user info. from the request header.
I can get the page to complie without a problem from behind the firewall. However, I can't seem to get the page to compile now that I've opened port 80 on my development server so outside users can take a crack at it. Has anyone had similar problems?
The environment I'm in is NT 4.0/IIS 4.0 with IBM's WebSphere as a servlet container. I'm having IIS enforce NTFS permissions by prompting the user for credentials. Once this is complete, I find out who the user is and query the database. Initial testing tells me that none of the java code in the jsp is compiling.
Thanks,
Rob

Well, I'll answer my own post in case it helps someone.
My problem was that I never established an alias for WebSphere to the production URL. So the jsp pages were being served up by IIS no problem but WebSphere wasn't hosting the URL to see if it should be doing anything.
Hope this helps someone.
