JBoss version 3.2.3. Sorry.
Even I am facing the same problem. Using Jboss3.2.1(Jetty).
Besides that I was also trying to mix protocols after login.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanx in advance
I seem to be missing something rather basic here. Out of curiosity, I changed the authentication method to BASIC and it worked perfectly fine. I am really really confused as to what is wrong with Form based authentication here. I can't used Basic auth method.
Any suggestions or alternatives that I might look at?
To support SSL in our development, staging and production environments, I configure Apache http web server to perform the SSL transport, then configure the apache http web server again so that it acts as a reverse proxy for a given application. For example, when I access an applicaion using this url:
I have set up the apache configuration to redirect all that https traffic to a different machine running jboss on whatever port, say:
In this way, you can split the SSL work away from the jboss application server. The advantages is better performance, plus it should be easier to configure apache for SSL as it's such a typical thing to do with lots of resources on the web to explain how to do it. Plus most of the major certificate providers have tutorials on how to uses their SSL certificates on Apache, again easing your workload and understanding.
Best of luck whichever approach you use,
Changing the ports to standard ones solved the problem
