I am mostly following this page:
I used this command to create the keystore
keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore /etc/tomcat6/keystore
and answered the prompts
Then i edited my server.xml file and uncommented/edited this line
<Connector port="8443" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol" SSLEnabled="true" maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true" clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" keystoreFile="/etc/tomcat6/keystore" keystorePass="tomcat" />
Whole server.xml file: http://pastebin.com/yVRiNHi7
I'm using the protocl Http11Protocol instead of HTTP/1.1 incase there was an issue with it being autoconfigured to "APR" as suggested by the tomcat tutorial (not sure if I have that or how to find out if I do). However it seems to have no effect on whichever protocol I use.
then I go to the web.xml file for my project and add this into the file
<security-constraint> <web-resource-collection> <web-resource-name>Security</web-resource-name> <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern> </web-resource-collection> <user-data-constraint> <transport-guarantee>CONFIDENTIAL</transport-guarantee> </user-data-constraint> </security-constraint>
When I try to run my webapp I am met with this:
Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:8443. * The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. * If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
If I comment out the lines I've added to my web.xml file, the webapp works fine. My log file in /var/lib/tomcat6/logs says nothing. I can't figure out if this is a problem with my keystore file, my server.xml file or my web.xml file.... Any assistance is appreciated
I am using tomcat 6 on ubuntu.
