            Hi All,
            I have now successfully installed Cognos 7.5 on Solaris 10 environment. Everything seems to be working fine except the the Cognos Upfront URL. I have installed Apache2.2 on Solaris 10 box and I am trying to connect from one of the windows box. I have tried doing http://localhost on Solaris box and it works fine. But when i do http://localhost/cognos it gives me Error 404 Not found . Below are the things I tried on Solaris box and windows box.

            when we use http://localhost on Solaris box :

            it shows “ It works “ when I use the above command . Please see below snippet :
            -bash-3.00$ wget http://localhost
            10:24:28 http://localhost/
            => `index.html.2'
            Resolving localhost... 127.0.0.1, ::1
            Connecting to localhost|127.0.0.1|:80... connected.
            HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
            Length: 44 text/html

            100%=================================================================================================================> 44 --.--K/s

            10:24:28 (1.08 MB/s) - `index.html.2' saved 44/44

            -bash-3.00$ cat index.html.2
            <html><body>

            It works!

            </body></html>

            -bash-3.00$ wget http://localhost/cognos
            10:25:09 http://localhost/cognos
            => `cognos'
            Resolving localhost... 127.0.0.1, ::1
            Connecting to localhost|127.0.0.1|:80... connected.
            HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
            10:25:09 ERROR 404: Not Found.

            Can anyone please help on this.
