    Tomcat 6, SSL https doesn't respond


    I have a bit of a problem at work. We have some applications running on a Tomcat 6.0.18 server, and we were recently asked to implement SSL on that server. I followed all the relevant documentation found on the Apache site and several people's blogs including generating a key, generating a CSR, sending off the CSR to a key verification company (we use Thawte), taking the resultant file and importing into the key, then moving the key to a spot in the Apache directory I can access easily. I then edited my server.xml to handle requests to port 8443.

    Pretty much all the tutorials I've tried are identical, and all is well until I get to this step:

    Test the SSL connection by replacing http: with https: and attempt to connect to localhost. All should work fine.
    Except that on my server, it doesn't. I've checked my server.xml file and the connection that I added matches theirs in the example verbatim (minus the key name and password of course).

    If I enter the address certain ways, it simply redirects to regular insecure http/8080. If I enter it with an s and port 8443 I get a long response time and then an error in the browser. If I give it an s and no port number I get a domain not found error.

    http://www.mywebsite.com/ - Works fine
    https://www.mywebsite.com/ - Domain not found
    https://www.mywebsite.com:8443/ - LONG response time, then a nonspecific error
    http://www.mywebsite.com:8443/ - redirects to regular http, port 8080.

    Is there something obvious I'm missing here?

    There are 2 things to check
    1. the connector of 8443 and socket
    2. check the port is open

    Tomcat 6, SSL https doesn't respond

    I'm having the exact same problem with the exact same configuration:
    Ubuntu
    Tomcat 6
    SSL Certificate from Thawte

    Have you figured out what was going on?

    Thanks,
    Robert
