Hmmm. Using an installer should eliminate the config issues. It is 
also odd that it works for all files apart from swf ones.

I have tested the following combination and it works quite happily:
Win XP SP2, fully patched
Apache 2.0.54
mod_jk 1.2.14
Firefox client and IE6 client

Using the latest TC5 code from SVN shouldn't make any difference. The 
important thing is it proves it can work on XP SP2.

My best guess right is soemthing at the OS level. The firewall springs 
to mind but I can't see how.

One suggestion would be to try telneting to your two servers and 
compare the headers to see what might be different.

Another thing to check is can you access the swf file on XP if you 
connect directly to Tomcat?

The only thing I am sure of right now is that this is some form of 
configuration issue.
