Subject [users@httpd] Apache2 encryption to Tomcat
Date Thu, 22 Apr 2004 12:58:22 GMT

I've got Apache2 reverse proxing to Tomcat5 on a different box 
(Linux's), accepting SSL to Apache and using the SSLProxyXXX directives 
to terminate the SSL connection.

What I need is to provide a low grade encryption between the Apache2 and 
Tomcat5 boxes.

I know in Tomcat conf to uncomment the SSL HTTP/1.1 connector, using the 
SSLServerSocketFactory, but what I can't work out is how to get Apache 
to forward requests to this connector, encrypted.

The reverse proxy is nice and simple, so I hope I can get this to work 
without having to try jk2 connectors.

Any ideas would be great.
