Ryan, how are you connecting to JBoss?  Are you using mod_proxy or
mod_jk/mod_jk2?  The difference being that mod_proxy uses straight
HTTP proxying but mod_jk and mod_jk2 use the AJP protocol.

If you're not using mod_proxy, I would recommend doing so.

If you are using mod_proxy, please post the reverse proxy portion of
your httpd.conf file.  If you're not using mod_proxy and need help
with the config, I would be happy to post an example of how to
configure it with JBoss.

This *could* be a Windows problem, but this seems like an apache
config issue to me.  In any case, I would still recommend migrating
apache to Linux :-).
