Httpd and Tomcat are running on the same box and I've configured the
iptables to allow requests on port 8080.

The proxy works when request originate from the server itself. For
example, from the server that has Httpd & Tomcat running if I traverse
to http://localhost/service or -- the
proxy will work. However if I use any other computer on the network
the proxy fails/times out.
