Cannot access sites running on localhost using IP Address

Hello,

I have Tomcat running on my Mac which is used to serve the web pages. I can access the files (which are in folder myfiles) if I type in http://localhost/myfiles and the correct jsp files are shown to the user. The internal IP address of the mac is 10.10.10.4, which has been manually configured. When I type in 10.10.10.4/myfiles in the browser, I get a 404 not found page. However, the strange thing is, if I just type 10.10.10.4 in the browser, I get the Apache test page. I am not sure why I can access the test page but not the folder if I type the IP address. I would appreciate any help here.

Sounds like you have a permission problem on the Myfiles directory.  You will need to either enable a username/password login to the web-directory or open it to anonymous users through apache.  This is bypassed when accessing it as localhost because you, obviously, have access to it.

Thanks for your reply. How do I open the web-directory to anonymous users?
