Cannot access Tomact 9 from browser
I installed Tomcat 9 on my dorplet with Ubuntu 16.04 following this tutorial
I’ve changed the default port to 8181 because I have another service running on 8080 and started the service. If I check with
sudo systemctl status tomcat
it is running just fine.
If I check the ufw status the respons is good.
To Action From
8181 ALLOW Anywhere
8181 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
But when I try to reach the server in my webbrowser I get “Safari can’t open the page http://<my_IP>:8181 because Safari can’t connect to the Server <my_IP>”.
What could be the problem?
