have you enabled all user roles with passwords? in CATALINA_HOME/conf/tomcat-users.xml file? Also, don't forget to change the passwords noted as "<must-be-changed>" with something "interesting".
By default, it can only run on localhost, and it's configured to listen to 127.0.0.1 via the valve. If you uncomment the user role part and change the password, you should be able to log in. i was able to start it by doing above. Also, when you get 403, pay attention to what user roles you need to have for certain pages to be visible on localhost.
