Hi All,
I would really like you to help me with this problem which i am facing,
as soon as possible. I am new to the SSl world. I have a rmi Client and
server which uses connections through SslRMIServerSocketFactory and
SslRMIClientSocketFactory. The server that i have created starts fine.
When i start the client using the same truststore, policy and password
as what i was using for the keystore,policy and password of the client
it gives me a fatal Handshake error.
the error messages that i get are as follows :



D:\>java -Djava.security.manager
-Djava.security.policy=c:\tomcat\security.policy
-Djavax.net.ssl.truststore=d:\tomcat\.tomcat.keystore
-Djavax.net.ssl.truststorePassword=password RmiClient

error during JRMP connection establishment; nested exc
eption is:javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert:
handshake_failure
java.rmi.ConnectIOException: error during JRMP connection
establishment; nested exception is:
javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert:

.. 7 more

and this is when i run the sever as:

D:\>java -Djava.security.manager
-Djavax.net.ssl.keystore=C:\tomcat\certs\.tomcat.keystore
-Djavax.net.ssl.keystorePassword=password -Djava.security.
policy=c:\tomcat\security.policy RmiServer

Also i would like to know how the handshake is supposed to happen
between the client and the server.

Thanks in advance.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
