What works for you? Did you even read what I said?

How can the browser know if a server trusts a certain certificate or not
without even asking for it?

Let me explain the problem better.

Most of my site runs without client cert checking, so I have
SSLVerifyClient="none" on the connector. But I have one servlet that DOES want
a client certificate and so I configured the security restriction accordingly
in the deployment descriptor. Just that one resource, not the entire site.

It's in these cases that a SSL renegotiation does not occur to ask for the
client certificate. Tomcat only knows that I want a client certificate after
the client sends the http request.

Apache httpd has this feature and someone at the tomcat user's list asked me to
file this as a bug. Maybe it's just a missing feature.
