foreign characters being added to the end of urls?

After our website has been live for a while, our 404 monitoring plugin has picked up so many 404 errors. Bing has indexed our webpages with a ":" at then end of each url

http://greenscapeenergy.co.uk/smart-heating/rointe-smart-radiators/:

as you can see after the last / there is a colon. Ee have not ever used this as a link but Bing seems to have indexed it that way. Does anyone know why this is or how I can fix it without doing 301 redirects?

Bingbot can’t access my centos server websites

I have 2 webservers under the same firewall. One is Windows IIS and the other is a centos with apache and ISPCONFIG. For some reason when I try to add URLs or sitemaps inside bing webmaster tools it does not work with sites runing on the linux server. I have disabled all the local linux firewalls with no success. On a fresh install of Centos + Apache, bing bot can add the site with no errors, but when I finish configuring the server it stop working and I get the following message: Error This may be a momentary issue; try again, or check back later.

I'm pretty sure that is something about firewall but since I turned it off, what else could be blocking the bing access?

Google bot works perfectly well, the main website I'm trying to index is http://www.favolosa.com.br/ You can see that is indexed with google with no problems.

Thanks!
