I have tomcat 6.0.18 running on my laptop. Tomcat is installed under my /home/xxx/bin directory. However, after I start tomcat, I'm unable to connect to tomcat through my browser but my eclipse is able to do so. I do not get any error message, the browser just keeps on trying.
I've reached a dead end trying to resolve this. Any ideas, anybody ??
Thanks a lot. catalina.out gave me the clue. The error was in tomcat-users.xml. The user and role element did not have the closing forward slash /. This is surprising, since this is a fresh install of Tomcat. Anyways I'm now able to see the tomcat index page.
