[fpc-pascal] No access to Embedded FPC HTTP server on Vista or Win7

I'm running a fcl-web based embedded FPC HTTP web server inside a GUI 
application (HTTP port 9000). I then try and access that web server 
via   but under Windows Vista 
and Windows 7, the web browser simply says "Website found. Waiting for 
reply..." in the IE status bar.  It just sits there looking like it is 
loading, but nothing ever happens and after about a minute there is 
not even a timeout error.

This same application works perfectly on Windows 2000 and Windows XP 
(SP3 installed).  All applications and OSes are 32-bit.

When the application startup up for the first time under Windows 7, 
the Windows Firewall asked if I want to grant access - I have it 
"internal network only" access. Completely disabling the Windows 7 
Firewall made no difference.

Any ideas why this is happening?
