tomcat on windows server 2008 r2 /sp1

Hi All,

We have 2 GoDaddy servers with windows server 2008 r2/sp1. Both of them have jdk-6u32-windows-x64.exe installed. I setup tomcat 6 and 7 as the windows service on the systems respectively. The problem is that they only work with the browsers on the windows. If I use IE and FF on either windows xp or windows 7 to access the tomcat default page (, they work fine. However, the browsers (FF, chrome or Safari) on the other OSs (mac, iphone, and android) cannot display the default page. It seems that the problem occurs for the pages with linking to some static resources (e.g. image, js, or css). I also tried to run the tomcat as a standalone application, but it did not help.

Does anyone experience the same problem? Any suggestion or solution will be appreciated.

Are you using any proxy server ?

Thank you for looking at issue and response. Those are the dedicated servers from GoDaddy. Someone said that Godaddy uses proxy servers inside their network. However, we have other 2 GoDaddy servers running Windows Server 2003 and they are working just fine. So I think that the the new 64-bits Windows OS makes the difference.

Thanks again,
