Thanks Bill,

Armed with your confirmation and some searching, I figured out that the Java
(I'm using 1.4.1) X509TrustManager class can be overridden to make it think
all certificates are ok.  I'll remove the override once I get setup with a
CA issued certificate.

Anyway, thanks again!

Jeff Owens
