for something else, configure Tomcat to use port 80 for HTTP and don't bother running IIS
at all.)

Additional info :
Internet Explorer has a detestable habit (among many others) : for some 
HTTP errors, if the error page sent back by the server is below a 
certain number of bytes (it varies according to the error code), IE will 
substitute its own error page.
Which makes it all the more difficult to see where the error is coming from.
I do not know of a way to disable this in IE, but if you make sure that 
the error pages on the server are at least 1025 bytes in size, they will 
get displayed.
Unfortunately, I don't know off-hand where the standard Tomcat error 
pages are located.
