0 votes

I have two service running in tomcat. First service 'catalina' is having connector port 80, 443, 8080 and 8444. Second service 'catalina_advance' have connector port 8081 and 8444.

For catalina_advance, I entered a new tomcat access log file with configuration

when I hit the url http://ip-address:8081/context The port print in access log file is 8081
when I hit the url https://ip-address:8444/context  The port always print as 443.

Why this is happening

We have a set up like Apahce (80,443) redirects the request to Tomcat (8080) using mod_jk.

The new requirement is to route the request from the same apache to another tomcat (8090). Hence I made the different config file for apache with different ports (86,4444) and different worker for mod_jk which routes the request to tomcat.

Now the issue is when I hit the url http://:86 and after providing the credentials, it is redirecting to https://:86 and throwing the below error.

Error in browser:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to x.x.x.x:86. SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length. (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

Error in logs:

Could you please suggest where it might went wrong and the way forward..

In my webapp there's a directory '/admin' that's protected under SSL. Users are forced to use SSL via a security constraint in web.xml. It works great.

As mentioned in the docs and other places, it would be good to prevent SSL everywhere else on the site, but I searched around and couldn't find anything that works.I tried adding another security constraint with transport guarantee set to NONE for url-pattern '/*' but it didn't prevent https access to the site as a whole.

What's the correct way to selectively restrict https to only one area of a webapp?

My project is planning to upgrade to Tomcat 7.0.57 that has the fix for POODLE vulnerability and have the SSL protocol disable by default. We were up till now using the manual configuration change in server.xml in
order to disable use of SSL.

My questions is that after upgrading to Tomcat 7.0.57, is there any similar configuration change available, through which we can re enable SSL protocols again.

Please let me know if my question is not clear.

I am using tomcat version 5.5.7 in windows 7 Os. My problem is that , After I configure tomcat to use SSL , I get 'Keystore was tampered or incorrect password' error when I start tomcat.

I purchased a certificate from symantec verisign , and they verified the installation was correct and they said they cannot assist me further, as it is not their part.

I tried creating a self signed certificate like this ( ) , still I get same error.

Please help me to resolve this.
