Well I can get to the HTTPAdmin page on my 7.1 box from my iPad so it's not a total Apple conspiracy.

So David can run me off to the iMac list if this doesn't seem to be a

I have the most unusual issue and since I am a total noob in the Apple
world, I am not sure if it is a setting on the iMac or an issue with the
IBM i itself. Here is the issue:

I have a laptop (windows), my IBM i, and an iMac all on the same
physical network and subnet. Laptop is at, iMac at and IBM i at

I have multiple web sites hosted on the i with addresses NAT'ed and port
mapped by a Windows ISA Firewall. A specific example is
opensourceoni.com. That domain points to my ISA server and ISA maps
that to the internal address of and port 9095 which is
running Tomcat (yeah, I need to change that default page) .

On my laptop, internally, I can hit either opensourceoni.com OR I can
hit port 9095 and I'll get the web page. On the iMac I can
ONLY hit the external site URL. If I try, Safari
eventually times out with a "Safari Can't Open the Page" error.

If I fire up Tomcat on my laptop at port 9080 , I can then go to the
iMac and type and bang! I am on the Tomcat page served
by the laptop. Checking to see if it is a *NIX issue, I pointed the
iMac at a server that runs Asterisk and FOG and both web interfaces will
display. If I point the iMac to the HTTP Admin page on the IBM i, it
times out with the same error! The iMac CAN get to both the VIOS and
AMM web pages. So there is something fishy about the iMac and the i...

Wondering if this was an Apple conspiracy, I went ahead and tried the
same internal, i based web sites on my iPhone. They also won't display.

So the question at the bottom of all this is: Have any of you Mac folks
run into this? Is it that Apple hates IBM or is it something about
Safari on an Apple OS? Safari in windows displays all of the web sites
just fine.
