Subject Setting ClientAuth parameter to true
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2007 12:30:49 GMT



I am unable to set client authentication for SSL in tomcat 5.5.2. I have
generated the certificate for the client and imported the same into the
server's keystore so that the server can verify the client's
certificate. The following is the modification I make on server.xml.


    <Connector port="8443" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"

               maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25"

               enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true"

               acceptCount="100" scheme="https" secure="true"

               clientAuth="true" sslProtocol="TLS" 


truststorePass="xxxxxx " />


once this change is done and the server is restarted, I am not able to
hit this url https://localhost:8443 <https://localhost:8443/> .


At the same time, if I change the value of clientAuth back to "false" I
am able to access the url.


Can some pls help where I went wrong?
