I have a complicated configuration. I have a java server application that is invoked by jboss and jboss serves clients with an SSL connector and an HTTP connector.
The jboss application server responds perfectly when I run my startserver.sh script to run my app server as a foreground process. It responds to http:8080, https:8077, and https:8443
When I use the jboss_init_suse.sh as an RC script to run the startserver.sh as a background process then the HTTP still works but then the server no longer responds on the SSL ports. It only responds on the http port.
I am unable to guess what the problem might be. I also tried running the init script as root and it had no effect.
Some additional info:
using JDK 1.5.0_07 on SUSE 10.1
when it is running in the background using the rc script, when i point internet explorer (windows version) at the SSL port it will just give me a blank page and the little ssl icon in the bottom right corner of the browser says: "This type of document does not have a security certificate."
