While the question has already been answered, the actual culprit is how IE
for win32 handles urls with a specified port number.  If you specify a port
number you must include the http:// prefix.  It's always a good idea to
anyway so you don't have to depend on the browser to provide the work around
and try and guess which protocol you want to use.
