IDEA starting tomcat. Is it possible NOT to start it?

Hi

I've setup IDEA to run my JSP project, and I have integrated it with tomcat, but the problem is, everytime I run the project, IDEA starts the tomcat server, and opens the browser page, and when I stop the project, it stops the tomcat server. So my question is if there is any way I could run the project with the tomcat server already running (as a windows server or manually launched) and IDEA would just show the browser page, neither starting nor stoping the tomcat server?
I am using IDEA 4.5.1 and tomcat 4.0.6
Thanks.

You have to create a remote run configuration instead of a local run
configuration. (Remote means the server is not controlled by IDEA, even
if it is installed on the same machine.)
