Problem starting up Tomcat3.0 server

P: n/a
Hello all!

I am using Tomcat3.0 for my JSP application on my local machine. I am
also using McAfee Firewall. Whenever I start the server (by
dbl-clicking STARTUP.BAT)a message appears that says C:\..\java.exe is
trying to access the Internet. But if I deny the java.exe to access
the Internet, the dos windows closes down, and thus stops the server.
Although giving access java.exe to Internet solves the problem, but I
am just wondering why is java.exe trying to access the Internet
anyway?

Thanks for your suggestions.

It might be just referencing 127.0.0.1, or "localhost" to talk
to itself. I have ZoneAlarm and it tells me the ip addr.

Also if you have a <!DOCTYPE> declaration in an XML file that references an
external URL, Tomcat might be trying to connect to the DTD in order to
validate the document. See if you can get your firewall to tell you the
hostname or IP address it's attempting to connect to.
