    A. Open the Windows Services panel. Select the Apache Tomcat service from the list and start it.
    B. Enter this case-sensitive URL into a browser:
    A page that says 'Hello World' displays if the test is successful.
    If this test fails, check the URL carefully for case or spelling issues. Retrace the installation steps. The URL may work if 'http://<hostname>:8080/...' is specified. This only indicates that the Tomcat Web server is working on port 8080; the required redirect to IIS is failing.
    C. Return to the IIS Management Console > Default Web Site > Properties. Check the ISAPI Filters tab. Verify that there is a green, upward arrow next to the Jakarta filter.
    This only applies to IIS 6; IIS 7 does not have a way to check if the ISAPI filter is working.
    If there is not a green arrow next to the Jakarta filter, stop and re-start the IIS Admin Service, including the WWW Publishing Service, from the Services panel. If that does not work, open a browser, and type 'http://localhost' to re-initialize IIS. If the Jakarta filter still fails, do not proceed further. Go back and verify the settings created in the previous steps.
