Subject FW: HTTPS access with Tomcat 4.1.18
Date Mon, 13 Jan 2003 17:31:35 GMT
Just wanted to add something to my earlier post:

The Tomcat setup with SSL works on my other machine with IE6.0. The only
difference I can see is that the "misbehaving machine" has "autoupdate of
security patches from Microsoft" on.
