The Tomcat Servlet Container
Tomcat doesn't work with IE 7
I have installed Tomcat 5.5, but I can't get the test page to come up.when I go tohttp://localhost:8080I get the message "internet explorer cannot display the webpage" I'm sure Tomcat is running because I can see it in Task manager/Processes. Could it be a problem with IE 7? I have the defaults for security and privacy. I have the envirinmont variables set upfor Catalina_home and Java_home
Welcome to JavaRanch.Are there any error message sin the server logs? Can you access Tomcat with a different browser?--------------------BlogLearn something new on the Java platform: Scheme Prolog
Tomcat and MSIE live in two different worlds. As long as the browser can send a proper HTTP request and parse a proper HTTP response, it will work with Tomcat (or any server for that matter).The first thing you should do as a web developer is shut off MSIE's 'Friendly HTTP Error Message" feature. It hides the real error messages from you.Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced (tab) -> un-check "Show Friendly HTTP Error Message"--------------------Java API J2EE API Servlet Spec JSP Spec How to ask a question...

I tried with Firefox and I get an "Unable to Connect" error. I unchecked the "show friendly HHTP messages" and I get the same "Ie cannot display the webpage message". What logs do I check? What else can I try?
Under Tomcat_install/logs there are several log files.--------------------Java API J2EE API Servlet Spec JSP Spec How to ask a question... Simple Servlet Examples
