XSS vulnerability on Apache Tomcat server

I am currently pen-testing an Apache Tomcat v4.0.3 web server running on a 
Windows 2000 box. The server just provides access to an LDAP database 
through a search query. The box is connected directly to the Internet and 
seems to be protected by McAfee/PGP personal firewall/IDS which blocks the 
IP address for 30 minutes or so. TCP ports 21, 80, 389, 1002 and 1720 
seems to be open, the rest is filtered/blocked. The server is running 
tomcat_server/servlet/JNDISearch Java LDAP search code.

It seems to be vulnerable for XSS and path disclosure vulnerabilities. I 
got the path (D:\Tomcat\webapps) but any ideas on how to exploit the XSS 
vulnerability or advance with the test?

Ideas?
