Subject Re: How to use digital certificates

Ok, everyone else is signing their replies.  I can do that too ;-).

Out-of-the-box, TC 4.1.24 has very limited support for x509 auth.  Only the
(deprecated) MemoryRealm actually supports it.  Also, only the Stand-Alone
JSSE Connector will correctly retrieve the x509 certs in the current release
version (the Jk-Coyote Connector is fixed in the CVS, and the fixes for the
Stand-Alone PureTLS Connector will show up before 4.1.25 comes out).
