I would not call this a bug but more of a missing feature...

James wants us to pass arbitrary environment variables from IIS to
Tomcat and this
is really an important feature for all servers! Its been on my
to-do-feature radar 
for some time and eventually I will find the time to do it.

As for the SSL related work in the plugins. Until now I concentrated on
providing the 
standard SSL attribute meaning:

1. Is SSL on?
2. Ciphers
3. Session
4. Client certificates.

On servers such as Apache and Netscape (servers that play by the rules
:)) I actually
pass all this info, but IIS is different so It will require some more
