For what it is worth, I went to the URL where he claims to be getting an error,
and it worked just fine. The file he sent I believe would open up all
your server, in particular because I can't replicate his error.
It is possible that there is an error in the next steps after the
GetCapabilites request, but I would ask him to provide specific examples of
that. Unless you are doing proxying to a different machine in your thredds, I
don't know why a cross-domain request would be made. I ran into this problem
with ncWMS, but that was because we were indeed proxying.
