This must have a simple explaination...
I created a keystore file using Tomcat directions found both at various threads and at http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-5.0-doc/ssl-howto.html to the tee:
keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA
and followed instructions such as using changeit for the password.
I then proceeded to modify the server.xml file:
<!-- SSL/TLS Connector configuration using the admin devl guide keystore
I started jboss and it appeared to come up fine:
00:49:58,359 INFO [Http11Protocol] Starting Coyote HTTP/1.1 on http-0.0.0.0-8080
00:49:58,904 INFO [ChannelSocket] JK2: ajp13 listening on /0.0.0.0:8009
00:49:58,915 INFO [JkMain] Jk running ID=0 time=0/65 config=null
00:49:58,969 INFO [Http11Protocol] Starting Coyote HTTP/1.1 on http-0.0.0.0-8443
However, I'm not able to do a HTTPS request to port 8443 (as in https://x.x.x.x:8443/whatever.htm)... the hourglass just spins away.... If I change back to http://x.x.x.x:8080/whatever it works fine.
Must be something silly I'm doing?
