Subject RE: Some pointers in getting SSL in Tomcat 3.2
Date Wed, 29 Nov 2000 23:30:11 GMT
I agree with you, BUT:

SSL will not work properly with security turned on through FORM-based
authentication. There appears to be a bug as I have written to this list

No you can just download the binaries... I did and I have ssl working
(for Windows and linux).  Once you download the binaries you DO have to
compile 3 java files in TOMCAT_HOME/src/org/apache/tomcat/net.  Then
follow the directions in server.xml.
