Subject Tomcat 4.1 & https problem
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2003 20:23:05 GMT

I've been running Tomcat as a standalone Web server for a while. My project
run fine at http with sign applet. I want to switch from HTTP to HTTPS. 
I followed the directions in the document"" : 

   1. keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore mykeystore
   2. keytool -certreq -keyalg RSA -alias tomcat -file certreq.csr -keystore
   3. uncommented the connector provided by the config file:
       <Connector className="org.apache.coyote.tomcat4.CoyoteConnector"
         port="8443" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75"
         acceptCount="10" debug="0" scheme="https" secure="true"
           clientAuth="false" protocol="TLS" 
           keystoreFile="full path to mykeystore" 
           keystorePass- "changeit" 

However, it isn't working. I can't start Tomcat at all. I don't get any
errors at prompt or in the logs; I tried to use command window run "start
tomcat". It popup a command prompt and disappear. If I change className to 
<Factory className="" 
which used in document. I can start Tomcat and get "http://localhost:8443"
work but not https://localhost:8443 ( I commented out connector for http in
server.xml file).
I use jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12-LE-jdk14 which come with jbuilder 8. runing on
Window 2000 and IE 6

1. How can I fix the problem.
2. How can I find out error message? I tried to rum "catalina debug
-security" from command prompt. Most of error message is unrecognized.
