Tomcat, JMX and working at the local library

When working within a restricted IP network -- like those found at libraries, cafes, and other hot-spots -- make sure you run services on 127.0.0.1 and not "localhost". This will ensure that all network services you are working with -- and, in my case, developing for -- do not need to access the restricted network. For Tomcat 5.5.x you will need to edit ./conf/server.xml and add the attribute "address="127.0.0.1" to each <Connector> element. For example,
    <Connector
address="127.0.0.1"
port="8080"
redirectPort="8443"
minSpareThreads="25"
connectionTimeout="20000"
maxSpareThreads="75"
maxThreads="150">
</Connector>

<Connector
address="127.0.0.1"
port="8009"
redirectPort="8443"
protocol="AJP/1.3">
</Connector>
