Hi!
I am using tomcat server to view my jsp/servlet pages ....
the thing is, when My friend from another computer tries to access it over the internet .... it doesn't work.
It just shows an error page.
Is there something i must set? Or Tomcat cannot be access by anywhere in the net? only local?
(ps: I've set the URL to http://202.the.rest.of.the.ip/files/ )

have you set the 202...that rest of ip in your conf file instead of your localhost(or intranet) ip ?
also check if you have any firewall or proxy which doesn't allow your system to be exposed directly on the internet.

here is what I did for my friend to view the jsp's which I created(iplanet and jrun- did the same thing for apache and tomcat too)
1)Add the ip to the hosts file
1)go to IE or netscape and add the IP in the box which says " do not use proxy for...
It worked for us. Try it
