    SSL and Redhat

    I am wondering if someone can help me. I am running Apache 2 on Redhat 9. I am trying to get SSL to work. I have configured the appropriate files (httpd.conf and ssl.conf) and when i browse to the site from the same machine as the Apache server it works ok. However whenever I try from another machine on the network it fails. I can browse using http://192.168.0 as normal from the other machines on the network but not https.

    Any idea what is going on??

    wat does the error log say?
    r u just listening on localhost? or are you listening on the particular ip address? check the error logs to see the error.
    wat error message r u getting?
    Fixing Unix is better than working with Windows.

    The most common cause of this among the forums seems to be firewalls. Do you have one running? on Redhat that's called security level. You need to access the Security Level GUI and tick the services you want to allow. Web serving (http) and ssl - possibly ftp and mail.

    And when you say configured. you mean what exactly. Apache and ssl on RH9 should work out of the box. with all domain names and IPs pointing to the same area but it should work.

    What did you change in the ssl.conf?

    netstat -a and check if Apache is listening on port 443.
