Subject RE: IIS 6.0 SSL port 443 and Tomcat 5.0 problem.
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2004 15:29:49 GMT
Problem resolved.

The path for every link on the secure web page had to be adjusted slightly.  
For example:  My home page is located in the webapps folder called "Generic" 
and it is called index.jsp.  The path to the login page was:  
/Generic/jsp/login.jsp.  This path had to be changed to: /jsp/login.jsp and 
the link to the next secure web page worked fine.

The unsecure version of this same web site has no problem with the path 
starting with the Generic folder.  The secure verison of this same website 
is less tolerable and requires that the path start from the current level 
and proceed directly to the folder or file from that level.  My path was 
starting from the current level of my home page, going back up one level to 
the Generic folder, and then proceeded down to the login.jsp within the jsp
