Well, that is a lot of progress. You have already eliminated all the 
client stations, the client network and the client proxy server.  That's 
at least 50% of the elephant.

Is there still something between your PC and the Tomcat server, or is 
your PC talking directly to the Tomcat server (no front-end server, no 
proxy, nothing like that ) ?

And, how do you do this exactly, to switch between a GET request and a 
POST request ?

And, can you try this in Firefox e.g., with the LiveHttpHeaders add-on, 
to see exactly at the PC level which headers are being sent, and which 
are being received, in each case ?
