Was the splash page working before you added the SSL stuff? If it was I'm
not sure what the problem is. Comment out the SLL stuff and see if it works.

Can "localhost" be resolved on windows? Try it in a command window first.
Check the logs in %TOMCAT_HOME%/logs. Delete the log before you start and
have a look after the request is complete. It may shed some light.

Hi Donie,

 Thanks for the help.

I changed the Factory attributes.

Now i am able to run the tomcat.

But when i try to acces the home page https://localhost:8443/
i am getting page cannot be displayed
when i try to acces through id
i am getting a blank page.... nothing is displayed.

As per the bellow doc it is saying that try: https://localhost:8443
and you should see the usual Tomcat splash page (unless you have modified
the ROOT web application)

doc: url

What is the problem?... the tomcat is running fine and no error are

Thanks for the help in advace.
