Hi Everyone, I am trying to access my xp machine that is running tomcat from my other networked machines. All jsp files run fine from the machine tomcat is on but how do I access them from another networked machine. If I type http://localhost:8080/xxxx.jsp from the tomcat machine wich is called dimxps, shouldn't i be able to type http://dimxps/localhost:8080/xxxx.jsp from the other machine and see my server side form? I'm at a loss and I know I did this before a while back, but cannot figure out how. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, W

Replace localhost with the machine's IP address the same way you would to access the router's web interface. See if that works. or whatever it is.

Once you go to another machine, it is no longer localhost.

I agree. The computer name is not the same as a FQDN. You could fool it by using a hosts file to set it but usually it is a bad deal. You tend to forget the hosts entry.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
