Alright, I'll try it.

We're on Windows 2003 R2 SP2
Tomcat is installed as a service from the zip file, running under local windows account: tomcat_user
In windows, the service account shows up as:  .\tomcat_user
I have that service set to start manually.

I've also stopped the IIS Admin service, WWW Web, and the HTTP SSL that are all part of IIS.
