Greetings, I have been running tomcat for more than ten years. Today, I tried to change VPS providers. I created a Ubuntu server, added Java 8, and installed tomcat 9.0.58. I made no configuration or other changes. I simply unzipped tomcat and started it up.
I have no firewall running and I can ssh into the machine. I cannot connect to tomcat (port 8080) externally. And, when I attempt to shutdown tomcat via ./shutdown.sh I get "Connection refused". I tried the exact same sequence on my old VPS provider. It worked first time. The new provider is one of the top-tier providers. I shouldn't be having such a problem. I have put in a ticket with the provider but I thought someone on this list might say "did you try X?" I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks! Blake McBride
