Post install web admin problems. Gentoo Linux - Sun-JDK/JRE 1.5

I must admit I’‘m completly new to Jabber. I installed everything starting with Java. I assume[/i] at least the JRE is working b/c apps that use java work, but that’'s not exactly my area of expertise either.

here’‘s what gentoo’'s java config app says

be jive_messenger # java-config -v

java version “1.5.0_05”

Java™ 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_05-b05)

Java HotSpot™ Client VM (build 1.5.0_05-b05, mixed mode)

I navigate in my local web browser to, and i get the language selection menu. Just when I’'m thinking how easy this is going to be, I click on “Continue” and:


be: be


Powered by Jetty://

be is is my host name. (funny tangent: I was really confused when i attempted to travel to localhost:9090 and discovered i had a blog at http://localhost.be . since i didnt put in the “http://” in ff did an I’'m Feeling Luck Search, and you get the idea)

anyway, i cant find any good documentation or anything on google about this. I cant find any .jsp files on my computer at all, and the only log that says anything useful is admin-console.log which has a whole lotta of two lines:

00:13:40.840 WARN!! [pool-1-thread-1] org.mortbay.util.ThreadedServer.start(ThreadedServer.java:510) >17> Failed to start: SocketListener0@


00:13:41.718 WARN!! [pool-1-thread-1] org.mortbay.util.ThreadedServer.start(ThreadedServer.java:510) >17> Failed to start: SunJsseListener1@

i wonder if that has something to do with it?

anyway, im just trying to get this set up to use with asterisk-IM so if someone could just point me in the right direction, hopefully some reading material, i would much appreciative.

I did some research thinking that maybe something is wrong with my JRE or JDK, and the concensus seems to be this problem is with the web server built into jive messenger (or at least my installation of it).

Check your /etc/hosts file to make sure that the your hostname resolves correctly.


be ~ # cat /etc/hosts localhost.localdomain localhost be

now it works!

thanks a bunch

use netstat -a to see if port 9090 is LISTENING


Make sure that iptables is not running.
