Good choice! Are you still on a virtualized platform?

Could that mean Apache httpd 2.2.8 on IPv4?

Okay. Generally, it's considered polite to ask a single question in a
single thread. Next time, just post them separately.

Hmm... so, on the Linux install, mobile devices (presumably through the
wireless provider's network) connect correctly, but non-mobile devices fail?

This sounds like it might be a firewall issue. Does your laptop allow
outgoing connections to port 10000? How about your router? Are you on a
corporate network with IT Nazis preventing you from doing anything but
using ports 80 and 443? You can use traceroute or other tools to confirm
connectivity independently of the server software. Telnet also helps,
sometimes, too.

Please post the relevant parts of your httpd.conf and Most often, I've seen configurations where the
JkWorkersFile directive is in the wrong place. Also, please post as much
error information as mod_jk provides in your mod_jk.log file.

This is probably due to issue #1 above, no?

On your laptop, on the server, or both?

So, Tomcat is listening on port 8009, which is the default AJP port in
server.xml. Tomcat looks like it's expecting to receive requests from
httpd via AJP (provided by mod_jk).

Also good: Tomcat is listening to port 10000. This means that your
Tomcat configuration appears to be correct in terms of SecurityManager
(if present), socket binding rights, etc.

Note that Tomcat is also listening to port 8080, which is the default
HTTP port in server.xml. If you don't want connections to circumvent
httpd, you might want to disable this connector.
