tomcat 4 help

how can other computers over the net access my site running on tomcat 4? i've tried typing the IP add and it still doen't do the trick. ping works, but accessing it doesn't. i get an error connection refused, even though the firewall is not activated.

thanks

In other pc, try connect it via your local IP or hostname. Example:

try:

http://192.168.0.1:8080/mysite/hello.jsp

or

http://mypcname:8080/mysite/hello.jsp

or even your Internet Connection IP, example:

http://210.24.222.222:8080/mysite/hello.jsp

Where 210.24.222.222 is your IP address that you connecting to Internet.

8080 is the default port number, i'm sure you know how to change it to port 80 if necessary.

Hope this helps
