Subject RE: [users@httpd] SSL reverse proxy question
Date Mon, 25 Apr 2005 07:20:51 GMT
 Problem is that if you cannot read the request before the SSL handshake, it means that during
the SSL handshake Apache does not know which of the three certificates to present to the client
since it has not been able to read the Host header yet. Apache will attribute the request
to the first of the virtual hosts that matches the IP address and present the certificate
of that one to the client.

Therefore you cannot use SSL with Named Virtual Hosts.

You are not mistaken....the three CA certificates would match the three servers name...where
is the problem ?
Do you have any other idea ?
