Hi,

I have a webapp running that will work fine on http://localhost/. The only thing I have changed is changing the port from 8080 to 80. I would like to be able to make this visible by the public. I have a DNS domain. First of all, I can't access the page using http://myipaddress/webappName on a laptop in the same network or router. The ip address I'm putting in there is from the internal IP address. Is there anything else I need to change to make this work? I'd like to take this to the next level, but if I can't see it on the same network, that seems like a hurdle I should get over before trying to make this public. I have windows 7 64 bit for os, and I used the apache tomcat 6.x installer to install tomcat.

Thank you!

Do you have some firewall?
Can be that you need to open port in firewall?

ahhhh... I feel silly now. Thank you very much for the reply. Punching a hole into the appropriate places in the firewall made it possible

Thanks again. Feel silly
