I have a tomcat application server installed on a windows 2008 server - myserver1
So I can open this link http://myserver1:8080, on the browser.

now, myserver1 is exposed to Internet .
So users can do this - http://www.myserverl.com and it works fine.
Now how can i access the tomcat application server from outside? Like what should i write in the url or what should i do to implement this...

thanks a lot...

at999,

There are different ways to doing this, but here is one option:
- Open port 8080 on your Firewall for http://www.myserverl.com
- Connect via http://www.myserverl.com:8080

If you are needing this to work via port 80, then you can look at Port Forwarding. i.e., go from public IP port 80 to private IP port 8080.

That is Firewall-specific, so you will need to post the details of the Firewall you are using.
