Server rejects SSL from internet but not localhost

Hello,

My server "Glassfish" rejects SSL connections forwarded from my DYNDNS service. The HTTP service is working fine. I have ports configured for 8080, 8181, 80 and 443. The server accepts HTTP requests with the DYNDNS domain name attached 80 and 8080. The server rejects any SSL from the internet with my DYNDNS domain name attached on 443 and 8181 but accepts localhost requests for the admin login page. I think it may be domain name related and I will pursue this avenue of attack to figure out a solution. I know for a fact that the DYNDNS service is forwarding the requests to the Glassfish server because the rejections are logged. If anyone knows what I specifically need to configure in the glassfish server to speed my solution I would appreciate the heads up. Thanks.

Cheers,

I inadvertently changed a parameter in the Glassfish setup which I found as I was troubleshooting. Issue resolved.

Hello Greg, I think I'm having the same issue. What is the parameter you changed that was causing the problem?

Thanks,
