HelloWorldExample servlet is not successful on Windows 2003


When configuring ArcIMS with IIS 6.0 and Apache Tomcat 4.1.xx on Windows 2003, the HelloWorldExample servlet does not launch successfully.


Several issues cause this behavior, such as:

1. Apache Tomcat not being configured correctly with the Web server IIS.
2. Apache Tomcat uses the same port (8080) as the Windows Media Server (8080) under IIS Manager.

Solution or Workaround

If the Windows Media Server is installed and up and running, the ports used may need to be changed.

Change port 8080 of the Windows Media Server from 8080 to 9090 in the IIS Manager, and if using SSL change its port from 8081 to 9091.

Restart the services IIS Admin and WWW Publishing Service.

The test servlet HelloWorldExample should now be successful.
