Hello all! Just a quick question. The deult connector in the server.xml file
which comes with tomcat 6 

<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1" 
               redirectPort="8443" />

What is the point of the redirect port=8443 attribute. I have another
connector for SSL which is listening on port 8442, i thought as the standerd
port for this was 8443 (which is taken by my hosts plesk panel) maybe the
ssl connector would add in it's secuirty layer and then pass to the http
connector to process as normal, but as im using port 8442 for this and
havent changed the redirect-port to that, whats is doing?!

Thanks for any help for a newcomer to tomcat!
