The problem:
I have installed Java SDK 1.4.1, Apache 2.0.43 and Tomcat 4.1.12 on a Win2k server with NPS 1.5 SP1 and eGuide 2.1. Everything seems to be working except that when I try to access eGuide, I get the following error message:

HTTP Status 404 - /eGuide/servlet/eGuide
type Status report
message /eGuide/servlet/eGuide
description The requested resource (/eGuide/servlet/eGuide) is not available.Apache Tomcat/4.1.12

The solution:
Here is the fix, thanks to David Chenworth:

  • Edit /eGuide/WEB-INF/web.xml file and change the servlet mapping tag "eGuide/* " to "/servlet/eGuide"

  • Edit /Tomcat/conf/server.xml file and add a context entry (just before the example context entry) for eGuide:
    <Context path="/eGuide" docBase="eGuide" debug="0" reloadable="false"/>
