Hi, I created a new web project using eclipse. I put in it a simple html file, and tried to run it.
I selected the "run on server" option.
I was asked to choose the web server I want to use.
I was asked to choose: "tomcat server v6.0 at local host" - "STOPPED",
or to "manually define a new server".
Because my tomcat in signed as "stopped" (I don't know how, since it is running),
I chose the second choice: "manually define...", and "defined" my server, by choosing
manually from the list: tomcat 6.
I got an error of:

Several ports (8080, 8009) required by Tomcat v6.0 Server at localhost
are already in use. The server may already be running in another process,
or a system process may be using the port. To start this server you will need
to stop the other process or change the port number(s).

my tomcat is running on : localhost:8080
port 8009 in avalable. I know it since I did: netstat -an , and saw that 8009 is listening.

What should I do?
Thanks a lot for any help.

How was the running Tomcat started, within Eclipse or externally? If
externally, see the Tomcat FAQ[1] for details about the Tomcat support
within Eclipse. The WTP Tomcat support assumes by default that the
installed Tomcat should not be interfered with. The Tomcat server
created within Eclipse is a separate server, port conflicts not
withstanding.

Cheers,
Larry
