I have installed the apache-tomcat server on my local win7. The port I specified is 9999.
I can access my service by
But I cannot access my apache server from other computers. I searched on the internet, and found I should add a firewall inbound rule in its advanced settings.
- Right click "Inbound Rules" on the left pane
- Choose "New Rule"
- Choose "Port"
- Under "Specific ports" enter your port number (9999)
- Continue with "Next" until the end of the wizard, naming the rule when asked.
After doing this, it still doesn't work!!
Then only method I find by far is turning off my windows firewall! But this is not preferred since the potential security risk.
Some online post refers to httpd.conf file. But my apache-tomcat have no such kind of fire.
Could someone give me some hints?
