Subject Re: Mozilla, SSL certificates, and Tomcat 5

I'm using Sun's j2sdk1.4.2.  Are you saying that using IBM's JVM would 
make a difference?

I've read the howto.  Again, I have SSL working with IE6.  Mozilla 1.4 
on the same machine gets a server certificate, but then fails to get any 
data.  Seems like a handshake problem to me.
