Just curious, if you do this from both machines, do they give the same 
telnet <websiteaddress> 80
GET / "HTTP / 1.0"

You could log the telnet via "telnet <address> 80 | tee -logfile.txt". 
I'm just wondering if the web response will change based on where you 
access it from. If it is the same, you can ignore machine differences 
and concentrate on browser differences.
