    jboss4-tomcat55 binding issue

    fricknevil Newbie

      Problem
      JBoss 4.0 bundled with Tomcat 5.5, out of the box, will not bind to port 8080 for all interfaces. i.e. I can telnet to the port from the localhost, but not from outside. Please let me know how to bind to this port properly.

      On local machine...

      telnet 127.0.0.1 8080
      Trying 127.0.0.1...
      Connected to 127.0.0.1.


      On remote machine... (IP address masked slightly)

      telnet 208.100.x.x
      Trying 208.100.x.x...
      - this will eventually time out


      Running a netstat -anp | grep 8080 shows this:

      Active Internet connections (servers and established)
      Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
      tcp 0 0 :::8080 :::* LISTEN 17487/java
      


      From the above, I can see that java (jboss) has a server socket listening on port 8080, but the local address looks off. Shouldn't it be binding to 0.0.0.0:8080 or 127.0.0.1:8080?

      System
      OS: Linux, Fedora Core 2
      JBoss: 4.0.2 w/ Tomcat 5.5 (out of the box)
      Java: 1.4.2_09

      server.xml
      Here is the relevant sections of the server.xml (out of the box)

      <Engine name="jboss.web" defaultHost="localhost">
       ...
       <Host name="localhost"
       autoDeploy="false" deployOnStartup="false" deployXML="false">
       ...
      


      I don't have a firewall running for this test.
      I really appreciate the help.

      Thanks,
