It's only linked when you ask the WebServer for a page, and it fetches
it from the AppServer. If you ask the AppServer (port 9080) the
webserver isn't involved.

The message you pasted is generated by the browser when it can't
connect to port 9080, where your AppServer is normally listening.

I did that to illustrate the behavior when the WebSphere Plugin can't
connect to the AppServer. You don't want to change the port.
