Im just now installed the GeoServer in my system . The installation process fine.After the installation i have started the GeoServer then i tried to use geo server web admin page but it is showing some error.in google chrome This is a proxy server. Does not respond to non-proxy requests.

And the internet explorer shows that

**HTTP 500 error

That’s odd... Microsoft Edge can’t find this page

This page can’t be displayed, because this site’s server might be under maintenance or there could be a programming error. **

I have uninstalled the GeoServer and the i change the port 8080 to 8085 then also not working well. this time the error is changed ie, dial tcp [::1]:8085: connectex: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

  • @PolyGeo do you have any suggestion for this issue? – Pranav MS Oct 26 '16 at 6:40

    Please edit the question to discuss what steps you have taken to be assured that the "actively refused" connection wasn't due to a misconfigured firewall. – Vince Nov 5 '16 at 3:14
  • I got solution for this. in my system the port 8085 is already used by some process and what i did , i just changed the port no for Geo server to 8081 the its works form me. Thanks all. – Pranav MS Nov 8 '16 at 9:02

I found a solution for this. In my system, port 8085 is already used by some process. Therefore, I just changed the port number for GeoServer to 8081 and it works.
