Hi Criag,

Thanks for the answer

I followed your advice and obtained a certificate from verisign but I'm
still getting the same error and having alot of frustration here :-(


When I create the certificate pair with keytool for tomcat and export it to
send to verisign they send me a signed certificate back.  Do I do an import
on this ?  I've done so but I end up with two entries with my keytool -list,
one for my original tomcat alias and the other for mykey which is the
trustedcertentry. ?

Verisign sent me an email that told me to point my IE55 browser to 

install the Test CA Root.  This I've done.

But no go.  I get this null cert chain error.  What can I check on IE5 to
see why it isn't sending what ever it isn't sending ?

Thanks for any help again.
