Subject Problems with authentication and encryption
Date Wed, 24 Apr 2002 14:46:06 GMT
 I'm running Tomcat 4.0.3 standalone and I've tried to enable encryption and authentication
(BASIC) on a jsp-page. I've currently only tested this with IE 6.

 Without encryption everything works fine. I simply type in the access-restricted URL, a BASIC-authentication
requester appears, if I don't enter the correct username and password the page is not shown.

 Then I add the following three lines to my web.xml (inside the security-constraint element):


 Again I type in the access-restricted URL. However, this time a requester appears stating
that from now on a secure link will be used. So far so good I guess, so I press the OK-button
and to my surprise I am shown a "This page cannot be displayed"-message. I wasn't even given
a chance to type in my username and password. It happens using both BASIC and FORM based authentication.

 What am I doing wrong?
