Local JSP app without dependence on TCP/IP?

I want to install a JSP based application on a client system. The application is all local. The problem is if I install Tomcat and a use web browser the users TCP/IP settings such as proxy server settings can break my application. For a browser I use a simple MFC window with a WebBrowser activeX control hardcoded to navigate to my index.htm.
How can I make sure the application runs 100% of the time?
The only things I can think of are to directly connect a web browser with tomcat using pipes or to embed Tomcat in that application.
I am assuming this is a common problem and I am missing some abvious solution?
Thanks,
Ken
