How do I specify a Tomcat address for Yellowfin to use?

By default Tomcat will respond to requests on any IP address on the server. If you would like to specify a specific address for Tomcat to use, edit the server.xml file, located at: 

Yellowfin/appserver/conf/server.xml 

Add an attribute called address to the Connector item, with the value being the address you want to listen on. For example, to tell Tomcat to listen on the localhost address 127.0.0.1:

maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100"
connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true"
URIEncoding="UTF-8"
compression="on"
compressionMinSize="2048"
noCompressionUserAgents="gozilla, traviata"
compressableMimeType="text/html,text/xml,text/plain"
address="127.0.0.1"

After changing this file, restart Yellowfin so that Tomcat starts listening on the new address.
