Subject about Connector's attribute redirectPort
Date Fri, 12 Sep 2008 06:22:22 GMT
at tomcat official site,
redirectPort is described as below

If this Connector is supporting non-SSL requests, and a request is received for which a matching
<security-constraint> requires SSL transport, Catalina will automatically redirect the
request to the port number specified here. The default value is 443.

but i still don't understand what redirectPort is used for.

and actually, tomcat doesn't listen on the port specified by redirectPort,
so how does the redirect work?
