Default Server.xml: how to set up a virtual host

I need to be able to set up virtual hosts. We have one IP-address, but have several domain-names that are served from the same Tomcat server. In the book in chapter 19 there is an example how to configure this. I can set the appbase to another directory and that works. Tomcat is installed in another directory than /Library/Tomcat. Here's the code for the server.xml file:

 <Engine name="Standalone" defaultHost="localhost" 

    <Host name="europa.dom" debug="0" 
        appbase="/volumes/websites/europa.dom/webapps" unpackWARs="true">
        <Context path="" docBase="ROOT" debug="0" />
Opening localhost pages works fine, but opening europa.dom-pages doesn't work. Do I need to set something else to get this to work? Am I doing something wrong here?

Btw: I'm working on a Mac OSX 10.3.3, Tomcat 5.0.24, but need to do the same on W2K, Tomcat 4.1.24. On both machines Apache is not running.

Im guessing, but you could try using the ip instead of the domain name, I know you should be able to use the domain, just an idea

You need to look into the Server.xml file for the host & port settings.

Could you see some setup, I am not much familiar with Mac OS
<Server port="8005" shutdown="SHUTDOWN" debug="0">
  <Service name="Tomcat-Standalone">

The link will help u much to setup the TOMCAT
