I'm working with Postgis->Geoserver->openlayers on localhost. I followed a Geoserver tutorial to import some nyc sample data into my postgres/postgis database and link it to Geoserver. The layer seems to display correctly in Geoserver using the openlayer layer preview. I then attempted to use OpenLayers to display a WFS-T from Geoserver on localhost, routing the LH:8081 (where my geoserver is located) through a proxy.cgi script to avoid Cross-Scripting. When I visit: proxy.cgi I do get the openlayers home page (without images).
But when I try to display the wfs vector layer in my openlayers html/js page in either apache LH or jetty LH:8081/geoserver/www/ the POST call to LH:8081/geoserver/wfs doesn't complete. I am dumbfounded as to why this is happening.
