Thanks i have installed the bin file successfully also able to run startup.sh.

./startup.sh
Using CATALINA_BASE: /apache-tomcat-5.5.29
Using CATALINA_HOME: /apache-tomcat-5.5.29
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /apache-tomcat-5.5.29/temp
Using JRE_HOME: /usr/java/jre1.6.0_20
Using CLASSPATH: /apache-tomcat-5.5.29/bin/bootstrap.jar


Finally I got it working All i need to do is to disable the firewall as it was blocking port 8080

Now whenever i click on admin page and enter default user as admin password blank it says invalid password.

I have not done any changes to password file ?
Have they changed the default user/password ?
