I have installed the Alfresco-community-tomcat 2.1.0 version on e remote server (located on an ISP) with Fedora 8 distribution.

Deployment fails and this is the excerpt from Catalina log.

I've run the command nmap -sS on the server and this is the result:

Starting Nmap 4.52 ( ) at 2008-05-13 15:22 CEST

Are there some other ports to open?

The problem is that if I connect to the server with ssh and execute from the konqueror browser (on the server): http://localhost:8080/alfresco (or then everything is ok and the cms works fine. But if I try to connect remotely by typing on my browser a timeout error appears.

Can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance.
