Java Tomcat Application Access Issues on Virtual Machines

(OP)
Hi,

I know that this is probably not the right forum to post this in, but I've already posted in the "Sun: Servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP)" forum, with no reply, so I'm not sure if anyone's seen it...yet.
If there is another forum you recommend I post in, please let me know.

We have a Java struts servlet application which is running through Tomcat and is access through our intranet page.
Java version 1.5, Tomcat 5.5.29, Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 – this is on a virtual box, let’s call it Virtual01. I know that the Java and Tomcat versions are out of date, we are working on upgrading them on a separate project. Users are authenticated through JCIFS and LDAP.

Everyone can access the application from their local PCs via the intranet, but when trying to access the application through RDP or any other virtual box, it doesn’t seem to work.
It will bring up the login box for the user to put in their username and p/w, but then we just get a blank screen. We can’t see why there is an issue with accessing it through other virtual boxes or RDP when users can access it from their local PCs.

My local PC has Java 1.6, the other boxes we’re trying to access the application from has 1.7 – surely that shouldn’t matter? I would have thought the application would use the Java version that’s on Virtual01, since that’s where it is running from? Am I wrong about this? Or is it something on the server side or network side?


Thanks
Seema

RE: Java Tomcat Application Access Issues on Virtual Machines

The Java version on the client computers is not relevant, the access to the web application is just done through the browser. If some PCs work and others not, the problem is in the RDP part. Maybe having a look at http requests with HttpWatch or something similar can help

Cheers,
Dian

Thanks for Diancecht. I think we've narrowed it down to individual PC/laptop setups.
