I'll continue to top-post, since you do.
(Note that this is not the most logical way to have a conversation; it is easier when 
questions and responses follow a logical top-down order).

Summary :
- your Apache httpd configuration looks OK
- your Tomcat AJP Connector looks OK
- you can connect with a browser to the HTTP port of Tomcat, and with the URI "/", you get

the Tomcat homepage
- you can ping the Tomcat server from the Apache httpd server
- from the Apache httpd server, you can telnet to port 8009 of the Tomcat server
- if you remove the "JkMount" directive from the Apache httpd configuration, you get the 
expected Apache httpd page
- if you insert the JkMount directive, you get a message saying that Tomcat cannot be reached
Obviously, something is wrong in the above list.  If, from the command-line on the Apache

httpd host, you can establish a TCP connection to the Tomcat host on port 8009 using 
telnet, then there is no immediate reason why mod_jk should not be able to do the same.

Unless mod_jk is trying to connect to some other host than the one running Tomcat.

The thing which causes a bit of doubt there, is that in your file, you

use the hostname "" for Tomcat, while in all your other checks and 
messages, you use the hostname "tomcatappserver".
Is this just a matter of typing and censoring, or are these really two different names ?
Or are they really two different hosts ?
That they /should/ be the same host, does not necessarily mean that they /are/.

Can you confirm that using the /same/ hostname in your file and in your

ping and telnet tests, everything goes as you have described it so far ?

Note that you can also use the JkLogFile and JkLogLevel directives, to get more explicit 
error messages from mod_jk. But seen the above, it would probably just tell you that it 
cannot connect to "server2".

I get the Apache Tomcat/7.0.14 page.  But, if I put in the apachewebserver url with the default
port, I get this message:
