The above is good. It means that at least the DNS part is OK.

That is not good.  It means either that Tomcat is not working properly, 
or that something is blocking port 80.

How exactly did you do this ?

Q6.5 :
Can you explain what you mean by "can see on server with no problem" ?
Do you mean that if you open a browser directly on the server console, 
then you can see the Tomcat default page when you enter :

But if you do this on any other workstation, you get a "cannot display 
this page" answer ?

A whole bunch of new questions :

In which directory is Tomcat installed on this server ?

Supposing for now that this directory is "c:\tomcat", then under this 
directory, are there the following subdirectories :
- c:\tomcat\conf ?
- c:\tomcat\webapps ?
- c:\tomcat\webapps\ROOT ?
- c:\tomcat\webapps\InfoViewApp ?

(replace "c:\tomcat\" above by whatever directory your Tomcat is really 
installed in)

Is there any other (than InfoViewApp) Tomcat-based application running 
on that server ?
Will there be other applications there in the near future ?

Suppose that we set this server up so that /both/ the URLs :
return directly the login page of your application, would this be a 
problem ?
Or do you need that "http://adm138" still returns the default Tomcat 
homepage ?

In the "\conf" subdirectory of your Tomcat installation, there is a file 
named "server.xml".  In that file, there is a section resembling the 
following (the ports may be different) :

     <!-- Define a non-SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8180 -->
     <Connector port="8180" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
        maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
        enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100"
        connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true" />

Can you copy and paste that section in your answer ?

On the server, in a command window, enter the following command :
netstat -anb -p tcp
then also paste the response in your answer here.
