Hello friends,
I had a strange problem while setting up Apache Tomcat 4.0.4 on my desktop which runs on Windows NT4 SP6 platform.
I installed Tomcat and started tomcat.In order
to check Tomcat,I opened a browser window and typed http://localhost:8080.I couldn't see the Apache Tomcat home page.The browser was hanging without any response.
Then I tried with which is the IP address of my machine.It worked.It
displayed the Apache Tomcat home page correctly.
I couldn't understand what could be the problem?Is that related to any DNS setup?I could able to ping/nslookup the machine with hostname.
Could somebody help me?
Thanks for your time
