I think that is is listening. Try "netstat -an" - then the "cweb2:webcache" entry should show up as "cweb2:8080"
You're right, I do see it on port 8080 with -an.
It's back to figuring out a Redhat issue I guess. I can see the port available through netstat, and locally I can telnet to 8080 to connect to it, but I can't reach it from another PC. iptables is stopped, so something else is in the way .. interesting, I'll have to work on that.
Right again PeterJ! You can also see this in the netstat, if you know what to look for (in hindsight).
When you bind a local port netstat -a shows as:
tcp 0 0 :webcache *:* LISTEN
When you bind the 0.0.0.0 (all), it shows as:
tcp 0 0 *:webcache *:* LISTEN
I went back through the readme and installation guide, and all I saw in there was a passing reference to this in the run.sh syntax a few hundred pages into the install guide.
Thanks for your help!
That first entry with netstat -a should be..
tcp 0 0 hostname:webcache *:* LISTEN
The switch from binding to 0.0.0.0 to binding to 127.0.0.1 happened between 4.0.x and 4.2.x, so the 4.2.x readme files highlighted this change. But that information is missing from the 5.0 readme - I guess the developers felt that people were used to the localhost binding by now (so far I have seen 3 forum posts on this topic this week).
