Subject RE: mod_jk errors with tomcat 6.0.20 and Apache 2.0.52

Thanks for the responses.

In between times I tried the ProxyPass which seems to work fine, but I'd much rather use plain
AJP so I'll try that next.
I've had problems previously getting CAS working where the SSL is handled by the webserver
- however from what everyone has said and having read around the issue a bit more, it does
sound like using AJP ought to work, so long as Apache is configured to pass through all the
relevant SSL and cert. info to tomcat (presumably so that isSecure() can work, plus I think
CAS validates certificates too).
