Can't access http://localhost:8080 in Tomcat 3.2.3 !

AndreasNAndreasN Posts: 13Member
I start Jakarta-Tomcat-3.2.3 whitout any error-messages. I have set my classpath, TOMCAT_HOME and JAVA_HOME. But when I try to access http://localhost:8080 in my browser I get the following error-message:

ERROR The requested URL could not be retrieved

While trying to retrieve the URL: /

The following error was encountered:

Invalid URL Some aspect of the requested URL is incorrect. Possible problems:

Missing or incorrect access protocol (should be `http://'' or similar) Missing hostname Illegal double-escape in the URL-Path Illegal character in hostname; underscores are not allowed

Any idea what could be wrong?

    Is apache set up to use port 8080? if not then try just http://localhost/

    Otherwise I don't know.

    I found out what was wrong. My Internet-connection is using a Proxy. I had to allow the browser not to use proxy for http://localhost:8080. But thanks for your answer anyway!
