Subject Re: Re: Tomcat 4.1.30 HTTP->HTTPS redirect problem (second attempt)

No, you misunderstand. Port 8080 is the unsecure port, so trying to access it with https gives
a "cannot find server" error. That's my problem. For some reason, the server is trying to
redirect to an unsecure port using a secure protocol, which doesn't work.
