I have SSL enabled apache/tomcat server running on linux and I have a static applet (client) which uses a URL connections to servlets in the server to get data. Since this is a SSL conncetion a security certificate copy had to be imported from the server to the client.
When I import it to a keystore and specify keystore by setting a system property for the ssl truststore it works with the appletviewer. However when loading the applet with the MicroSoft Internet Explorer(IE) browser this want work.
I created a certificate for the client with .cer extention and imported it to IE. Now it gives an SSLException stating "Untrusted server cert chain"
If some one have any idea about this problem please help me
