The machine name should work as long as they're connecting via DNS.  Is your
test case using the IP or DNS?

The CN is the name of the machine, i.e. mis1. I haven't tried the IP yet,
but as people will connect via the DNS entry will that resolve to a correct
certificate entry in people's browsers? Yes, I know they will have to import
the root CA but that's for later.

Thanks,

BTW, I believe that the CN of your cert needs to be your machines IP or
domain, whichever is used to connect.

There is a password specified, I just didn't fancy including it in a
publically available mail archive. It is specified at the keystore creation
and also specified in the connector. Sorry for any confustion this may have
caused.

It doesn't matter what your keystore is named(at least in windows).  I
usually use a keystore convention of appname.ks  Haven't had a problem with
it.  Robert, are you using a password for your keystore?  I've never tried
it without a password.

Maybe its different on Windows, I only use Linux.  Certainly on Linux
the file is called .keystore, and of course as that is a hidden file one
could create keystore files till the sky turned yellow before Tomcat
would take any notice of them, i.e. it would use whatever was in
the .keystore file.
