I installed and configured office web apps. SharePoint 2013 is on svr-1 and office web apps is on svr-2. Everything looks correct except when I open a document in the browser it just hangs at "opening word web app" or "opening excel web app". No errors, nothing in the even viewer. I added both servers to my trusted sites in IE and no luck. I tried opening in chrome and same issue. I do not know what else to look at?

I would guess this is either browser config (possibly something enforced by GPO), or perhaps simply the SP 2013 config, but probably comes down to permissions.

Please try working through these Technet articles:
