Subject Some tomcat config questions
Date Mon, 24 Jul 2006 11:14:00 GMT


First post so be kind :)

I've just run a nessus scan against one of our servers running tomcat 4.1.30 standalone on
linux and its highlighed a few problems that I cant find config options for.

First off is weak ssl ciphers, I've currently got 


For eash ssl connector as suggested here
However, nessus still says it supports weak ciphers. What have I missed?

Second it says I have UserDir enabled (like apache mod_userdir I assume) but again I cant
find a way to disable it

Third if I telnet to port 80 and issue "GET / HTTP/1.0" the "Location" header contain the
local ip address not the public one, It's sat behind a firewall.
I tried the "server=external ip" in each connector but I still get the internal ip address
returned, any way to fix it?

Lastly (I think) the version header is always "Apache-Coyote/1.1", any way to change it to
"Coyote" easily?

Thanks in advance!
