I have Windows 7 Professional on Dell Vostro 230.
I installed 64-bit Java JDK (jdk-6u22-windows-x64.exe). JAVA_HOME points to 64-bit JDK.
I unzipped Tomcat (apache-tomcat-6.0.29-windows-x64.zip) into Tomcat directory. I did not
use installer version.
I installed MySql (mysql-5.1.52-winx64.msi) into MySQL directory. Configured MySQL and
imported my app's database.
After some startup.bat changes I got Tomcat to start and to deploy my web app. The web app
connects to MySql.
Task manager indicates that both Tomcat6.exe and mysqld.exe are running in 64-bit mode.
I can access the app from a remote computer. All worked as expected.
I shutdown Tomcat.
I then installed Tomcat as a service (ran 'service install' from command prompt run as
administrator) and started service.
I can access the app from localhost but not from a remote computer.
Tried telnet [tomcatHost] 8080 - connect failed.
Spent a day looking for answers but no luck.
Anyone have any ideas?
