I setup Tomcat to run on my local machine where i generated the .keystore file specified all the required input and set the first and last name to myself. I then configured Tomcat for SSL via the server.xml file. Below is an excerpt from the server.xml used in my local environment:
The problem I have is when I try to setup SSL access for an application deployed to Tomcat and running on Windows Server 2003, where the browser appears to be loading the login page until it eventually times out.
As another test I deployed the same application I was trying to access remotely on my local machine and i was able to get to the login screen on localhost via https.
I created the .keystore file on the client machine, specifying the required input as I had done on my local machine. Also, as suggested on the forums I specified the domain name as the first and last name.
Below is the configuration as found in the client's machine:
Also picked up in the forums is mention of potential issues with SSL in cases where more than one instance of Tomcat is available on an environment, the client environment contains two instances of Tomcat.
Options I have tried to fix the issue include:
Changing the value of the protocol tag in the connector i.e. Connector port="8443" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol
Specified domain name at the first and last name prompts while creating the .keystore file
Please advise if you require further information and thanks in advance.
