Subject Problems with Tomcat 5.5.9 & SSL
Date Tue, 29 Aug 2006 06:11:03 GMT

I'm having a strange problem running Tomcat 5.5.9 together with SSL.

The system is a RedHat Enterprise Server 4.0 Update 3 and Tomcat is running 
fine, Port 8080 is accessable.
I have setup the SSL configuration following the documentation on

When I call the address https://IP-ADDRESS:8443/ with Firefox or Lynx 
everything seems to be okay. A windows comes up telling me that the server 
offers a self-signed certificate and at the end I have a ssl connection.

When I use MSIE or Mozilla instead, both browsers tell me that they could 
establish a connection to port 8443 on the server. tcpdump shows that data is 
transferred between browser and webserver but I never get a connection.
The logfiles don't contain any error messages .

Is this a problem with Tomcat, with SSL, with the self-signed certificate or 
with the two browsers?

Thanks for any help or hints,
