Subject Re: secured authentication / connection
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2007 19:53:23 GMT
Hello,

OK, I've done it : the SSL authentication of my tomcat server works pretty
fine. I'm currently using port 8443, though. But this is not my question.

The real question is a bit more weird. If I try & connect to my server on
port 8443, but with just http protocol (no encryption), Tomcat responds by
sending a file ! It is a .bin file which name is :

- either the context name of my request (for instance, if I ask
http://myserver.com/qwerty the file is called qwerty.bin)
- either a random (?) name if I ask the context name of my webapp.

Do you have an idea why & how to get rid of this, anyone ?

Cheers,

Pierre
