    Tomcat - JBoss only responds to localhost not to other addre

    Eric Roijen Newbie

      After installing JBoss it only responds to the localhost address.
      It wont listen to the ip address of the computer it is installed on.
      The same is true for the machine name.

      this is from the server.xml file in the Tomcat directory:

      [Engine name="jboss.web" defaultHost="Shuttle"]

      [Host name="Shuttle"
      autoDeploy="false" deployOnStartup="false" deployXML="false"]

      Please help.

      tnx Eric.

      P.S. I used [ and ] because the lines don't display if I use > or <

          JBoss version?
          Operating system?

          Do you have any firewall software running?

          What do you mean by it wont listen to the ip address of the computer it is installed on? Are you trying to connect from the same machine or a different machine.

          Can you ping based on IP and name?

          You shouldn't need to look at the Tomcat configuration files, on a machine that is already correctly configured on a network it should be accessible.

          If your machine is a Linux machine what is in your /etc/hosts?
