Application Express: EPG not working

Hi,

      After installing APEX, without installing anything else, you are suppose to be able to go to a local browser, on the same server as the APEX installation, and enter localhost:8080/pls/apex (or localhost/apex - I tried both) and have it go to the Workspace login. These are the steps that I executed:

1.)     Installed APEX 4.2 in an 11g database
2.)     Make sure the PORT is set to 8080, if not - set it.
SQL> SELECT DBMS_XDB.GETHTTPPORT FROM DUAL;
GETHTTPPORT
-----------
   8080
3.)    Go to localhost:8080/pls/apex in Chrome browser.

My understanding is that the above would be using EPG - Embedded PL/SQL Gateway
What can I test, check, look at to debug this?

Thank you,
Bill

did you install apex in a database running on your localhost?

if not, put in the servername or ip address of the database server

do you have a firewall blocking the 8080 port?

Yes I tried the ipaddress and servername.
How do I check to see if firewall is blocking the 8080 port?

I think you should go to http://localhost:8080/apex

you can try to telnet to port 8080 of the database server

what is the error you are getting?  (both trying telnet and through apex itself)

Hi Richard,
Yes, I just noticed I documented it wrong in my initial post

This:
localhost:8080/pls/apex (or localhost/apex - I tried both)

Suppose to be:
localhost:8080/pls/apex (or localhost:8080/apex - I tried both)

I even added, http://
