I have downloaded Tomcat 7 zip for 32 bit windows 7 machine. I have unzipped the package and created the windows service using ..\bin\service.bat. But when i start the service from windows services.msc, i could NOT access by web application from other systems. It can be accessed from localhost.
But when i start the tomcat from command line using ..\bin\startup.bat i CAN access my web application from other systems.
I have added address="0.0.0.0" in ..\conf\server.xml of tomcat. But still the problem exists. Tried with adding exception in firewall too. But no luck.
OS: Windows 7 Professional
