I have a tomcat server running on my pc which I can access locally via:
http://localhost:9090 (I changed the ports in the server.xml file). Now, I am having trouble accessing the tomcat server remotely (i.e. a different machine, I can test this with machines outside or inside of my LAN).
Anyway, what I have tried is using the netgear genie interface to configure port forwarding. I have set all internal and external ports to 9090 (I tried using 80 for internal and 8080 for external but I they were already being used).
When I point my browser to:
http://my-ip-address:9090 and it just times out... If I don't add a port, I am prompted with a username and password with a message box that says:
A username and password are being requested by
http://my-ip-address.The site says: "SMC Dual WAN Load balancing VPN Router Administration Tools"
This is NOT the same as the username and password that I needed to login to the netgear genie interface. Note that I use Ubuntu (12.04, 13.04 and 14.04) and tomcat7.
Please help me get connected to my tomcat server remotely.
Thanks for all the help, and let me know if you need any more information.
