Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 5 Administrator's Guide

Default Configuration

After a new installation of the Web Server , you have one server instance. This server instance has just one HTTP Listener listening on the port you selected during installation of any IP address to which your computer is configured.

Some mechanism in your local network establishes a name-to-address mapping for each of the addresses to which your computer is configured. In the following example, the computer has two network interfaces: the loopback interface (the interface that exists even without a network card) on address, and an Ethernet interface on address

The name is mapped to via DNS. The HTTP Listener is configured to listen on port 80 on any address to which that machine is configured ("ANY:80" or "").

In this configuration, connections to the following reach the server and are served by virtual server VS1

Use this configuration for traditional web server use. You do not need to add additional virtual servers or HTTP Listeners.
