This is, of course, what I mean.

The proxy seems quite robust about this and works when connecting to other sites 
on non-standard ports. (Its Tim Meadowcroft's HttpSniffer, about 1000 lines of 
densely packed perl and has been used as the basis for a few opensource http 
diagnostic projects)

This is good advice and probably the best course to take... The truth is that I 
am shamelessly looking for a quick fix to help me debug a webapp which is 
incidentally hosted on ApacheJserv - I thought that a quick verification of the 
proxy on Tomcat would allow me to get started - short cuts make long delays.

Its a bit of a long story and the end of an unproductive week...
