Web server and SSL

Any input on which web servers easily allow for using SSL. I know tomcat supports it, but it looks like I will need two SSL certificates to do it. Does anybody know how well tomcat integrates into IIS?

I'm using JRun 3.1, which also supports SSL. I don't how well it works, cause I never used it, but you can download a developers version from their homepage (
I also have no experience with TomCat or IIS.
Good luck,

When I worked with SSL before, you could get test certificates that didn't cost anything. I think there are sites where you can test the effectiveness of your SSL also. Sorry it has been a while so I don't have the URL's handy but hope this starts you in a useful direction.
I agree. Here's the link:
