    Cannot View Tomcat From External URL ?

    Phil Barr Newbie

      Hi all,

      I'm having a problem that has got me absolutely stumped. I can start up JBoss (tried with 4.0.4 4.2.0 and 4.2.1) and all seems to be well, and I can access the server using:
      However, I can't access it using my network ip:
      ...I just get, "can't establish a connection".

      What's really strange is that if i shutdown jboss and start up tomcat, I CAN access

      I don't even know where to start looking with this!

      Thanks for any help,

          Hope I get in here quick before anyone slams me for not reading the notes:
          Configuration Issues
          This lists the changes that could affect configuration.

          * JBossAS now binds its services to localhost ( *by default*, instead of binding to all available interfaces ( This was primarily done for security reasons because of concerns of users going to production without having secured their servers properly. To enable remote access by binding JBoss services to a particular interface, simply run jboss with the -b option, but be aware you still need to secure you server properly.
          So now i run with:
          run -b0.0.0.0

          ...instead of just double clicking run.bat

          And of course I'll worry about security at some point too.....
