If you can't apply the solution ( install the univiewer console 6.6.25 or superior), please apply the following workaround to add the tomcat server on the exceptions sites on the java control panel.

If you launch the univiewer webconsole from this link: http://server.domain.com:8080/univiewer_webconsole_6.6.21_all_os/,
The tomcat server url is: http://server.domain.com:8080
