Running the Server on another machine...

I configured my server (IP: as I did wen I setup the Jazz
server on my local machine:
- defining a couple of jazzusers in users.xml
- a keystore using the keytool
- adding in = 8080 = 9443
- adding a new <connector> in server.xml
- replacing <realm> with a new one pointing to my users.xml file.

Fyi, the same configuration works great on my local machine...

When I launch the web UI against:,
the Web UI shows up but when I try to login, nothing happens and after
the timeout, the web browser says that the server is not reachable...
On the other hand when I give him directly the following URL:
Then it asks me to accept the certificate, ... and I'm connected to the

I must certainly do something wrong or I have to do something else that
I don't know to setup correctly tomcat in such situation...

Any suggestion?

If nothing happens or you get an error, it means the variable's not set

You were right, Bill. thanks
Actually, a wrong (invisible) character was inserted between the 2 lines: = 8080 = 9443
So, when I tested
I got 'null' instead of 9443.

To fix the problem, I re-inserted a CR/LF and restarted the Server...
Now it works great!

Thanks again...
