Webworks App cannot connect to server/internet


I have a webworks app with the following config file: 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets" xmlns:rim="http://www.blackberry.com/ns/widgets" version="" rim:backButton="exit">

<access subdomains="true" uri="http://tankbb.freeiz.com/"/>

<feature id="blackberry.ui.menu" required="true" version=""/>
<feature id="sample.ui" required="false" version="1.0.0"/>
<icon rim:hover="false" src="images/torchicon.png"/>
<icon rim:hover="true" src="images/torchicon.png"/>
<content src="index.html"/>
<rim:loadingScreen foregroundImage="images/loading1.gif">
<rim:transitionEffect type="fadeIn"/>
<rim:navigation mode="focus"/>


The app is successfully packaged and runs on the Blackberry Torch simulator, however, it doesn't connect to the tinernet. Not even  display images from the server. 

I am using the latest Webworks SDK and Ripple Emulator Smiley Happy
