Subject Questions regarding SSL
Date Wed, 14 Feb 2007 18:20:04 GMT
I've tried to do my homework but I'm still having trouble with getting HTTPS to work.

For starters:

Server is Windows 2003 Standard Server, SP1. 

Java version is jdk1.5.0_04 plus update 11. 

Tomcat version is 5.5.20. Tomcat is set up to run as a service using the native dlls.

I've built a keystore, created a CSR, gotten a cert from InstantSSL and loaded the 3 certificates
from InstantSSL into the keystore.

Next I modified server.xml to enable 8443, refer to the location of the keystore and provide
the password. Then I restarted Tomcat

HTTP works fine with either 8080 or 8443, returning the splash page. If I use HTTPS, IE eventually
times out with the generic DNS error page. It is consistent in this whether I use localhost,
the ip address or the eventual domain name (presently set up in the hosts file for testing).

I've reinstalled Java and Tomcat thinking I missed something. I got a replacement cert and
built a new keystore. Same results.

There are no errors logged relative to this in either the windows logs or the Tomcat logs.

I'm new at Java and Tomcat so I'd appreciate a pointer or two on where to look next.
