I installed Tomcat 4.0.1 on NT and win2000. It runs OK on NT. But on win2000 I try to start it and I get message in the first dos window:
C:\tomcat401\bin>startup
Using CATALINA_BASE: ..
Using CATALINA_HOME: ..
Using CLASSPATH: ..\bin\bootstrap.jar;C:\jdk1.3\lib\tools.jar
Using JAVA_HOME: C:\jdk1.3
C:\tomcat401\bin>
In the second dos window I get:
Catalina.start: LifecycleException: Error creating server socket: java.net.Bin

Any ideas? I could not find which address Tomcat is trying to use.
Thanks.

Are you sure it's not because Tomcat is already running? That is usually the cause of this error on WinNT/2000, because on those OS's Tomcat can be run as a service, which by default, starts when the computer does.

Tomcat runs on the port you specify in server.xml

I checked again, only IBM HTTP server and DB2 are running. I stopped HTTP but still can’t start Tomcat.

Well, it's the WarpConnector where the fault occurs, so check your server.xml to see what ports that component is configured for.
I know how to track down port owners for Linux, but last time I asked about doing it Windows no one could give me an answer.
You could always to to telnet to that port ID and see if what kind of response it gives, I suppose.

Thanks!
WarpConnector is configured to use port 8008. I changed it to 8018 and now Tomcat runs!
Who is using port 8008? Can I track down this?

Hi Bruce J
The port 8008 is used by IBM HTTP Administration Service. this needs to be stopped before starting tomcat.

Thanks Sunitha.
In my Jan 11 post, I noted I tried to stop IBM HTTP server but still had trouble with Tomcat. I will see if this HTTP server's Admin is a different thread.

Howdy BJ....in the Win env you can use netstat -a to get a glimpse of who's runnign on what port.
Cheers!
