I've developed a Flex application that uses URLLoader to load a URL that points to a Java servlet. I couldn't get it to work with both the Java WAR (servlet) and my Flex BlazeDS app running on the same Tomcat installation, so I currently run 2 installations, a BlazeDS turnkey tomcat 6 instance on port 8400, and a standard tomcat 5.5 instance on 8080 that runs my servlet WAR.
The setup works perfectly on my computer (XP), outside of the IDE. But once I deploy to the server which runs Windows 7, all of the pieces work individually, but when I pull up the login screen at http://localhost:8400/fis_smreports/fis_smreports.html
and click the submit button (which calls http://localhost:8080/fis_benchmark/BenchLogin?username=123&password=XYZ
) I get the error #1058, saying my XML is mal-formed.
I know the XML is well-formed. The problem is that it's not finding the fis_benchmark servlet on port 8080. I'm wondering are there additional WIndows 7 security steps I have to take? I've already opened ports 8080 and 8400 (inbound and outbound) in the firewall. What else do I need to do?
