It sounds like it's running.
Try http://127.0.0.1:8080

Also take a look at the log files under tomcat/logs to see if anything is blowing up.

Hi
Can you check your webapps folder inside tomcat , is there ROOT application present ? Else you need to post the logs , then only situation will be more clear.
