apache tomcat VPN security issue

Unanswered Question
Feb 19th, 2007

I have set up a local apache tomcat server (5.5.20) on my development laptop. I need to VPN into my customers network to gain access to their database using Cisco iPass VPN. I am able to run all of my web apps while I am NOT logged into the network through localhost. However, once I VPN into the network to gain access to the database, I am no longer able to see my web applications through localhost. It is giving me an error "You are not authorized to view this page". I am assuming that I have not configured my tomcat security settings properly to work while using iPass VPN to access the network. I do not have a lot of experience setting up tomcat servers so please excuse me if this is a simple problem. With that said, if anyone has run into a similar problem, or knows a solution to this problem, I would be curious to know how to fix it.

I have this problem too.

I found the solution to my problem. I needed to change my proxy settings in IE to allow the page to be viewed while VPN'd in.
