    Hello,

    I am running tomcat 5.5.9 server on suse 10.0 with mysql server running
    as a backend. I have configured tomcat to run on port 8080 and apache
    on port 80, ( default settings).

    1) Now, on the network, from any linux or windows box i can by typing
    in the ip address of the suse machine, can access the website hosted by
    apache, without any problems.

    2) But, if i type in the ip_address_of_suse:8080 on the browser( of
    some other machine on the network, I cannot access the website, and i
    get a timedout error. Yes, I can access the website from the local
    machine by localhost:8080

    Your help will really be appreciated. Thanks again!

    Most possibly you have a local firewall on the Suse machine blocking
    any external access to port 8080.
