Subject Re: Problem getting http redirected to https
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2005 02:11:30 GMT
Since it's not working right, it would help if you showed us what you did 
when you "configured a security-constraint in web.xml for testPage.html". 
did you do:


In CATALINA_HOME/conf/server.xml, you need to configure the HTTP conector 
to redirect HTTPS to the HTTPS connector.

Do you have an HTTP connector configured in server.xml?  There are examples 
in the server.xml that shipped with Tomcat.

<Connector port="8080" redirectPort="8443" ... >

<Connector port="8443" scheme="https" secure="true" sslProtocol="TLS" 
keystorePass="secreted" keystoreFile="/usr/tomcat/.keystore" ... />
