I'm glad you brought this up.  We are using Tomcat on AIX with IBM's JVM. 
We have setup the Connector in the server.xml file, changing the algorithm 
and sslProtocol as the SSL How-to instructed. At first it worked, but now 
it doesn't.  We have not changed the configuration of Tomcat, nor have we 
changed the JDK.  When we connect, we get a notice about the certificate, 
but it does not display the pages: IE tells us that it can't find any 
pages, and Firefox just shows us blank pages. Here is the Connector 

    <Connector className="org.apache.coyote.tomcat5.CoyoteConnector"
               maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
               enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true"
               acceptCount="100" debug="0" scheme="https" secure="true"
               clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="SSL"

We don't need a secure connection now, but we will when we install the 
system for the client. I was hoping to avoid the installation of Apache on 
our clients' systems.  Does anyone know how this could happen?
