When attempting to open the start page of GlassFish Server, the initial screen does not appear.
When this error occurs, check the following:
If the server cannot be accessed from the web, but it is running locally, then the server is actually running.
Verify that the server is running locally.
If the start page does appear, the web connection is encountering a problem that prevents accessing the server remotely. If the start page does not appear, see Did the Server Start?.
The server should be accessible directly from the host on which it is running (localhost); for example, using the default port 8080:
A server instance running on localhost might not be accessible if the server host machine is connected to the web through a proxy. To solve this problem, do one of the following:
Set the browser to bypass the proxy server when accessing localhost. Refer to the browser's help system for information about how to do this.
Use the fully-qualified host name or IP address of your system; for example:
Create an entry in the system's hosts file (for example, pointing 127.0.0.1 to localhost; 127.0.0.1 is not proxied).
