This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
<!-- Define a SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8443
This connector uses the JSSE configuration, when using APR, the
connector should be using the OpenSSL style configuration
described in the APR documentation -->
<Connector port="8443" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
maxThreads="150" scheme="https" secure="true"
clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" />
<!-- Define an AJP 1.3 Connector on port 8009 -->
<!--Connector port="8888" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" connectionTimeout="3000000" keepAliveTimeout="3000000" /-->
Apache web server will transfer the request to cgi-qa-axis-rt using ajp protocol. In cgi-qa-axis-rt server.xml, this ajp connector port is commented out. In cgi-qa-axis-rt server.xml, port 8988 is using HTTP protocol.
Why does it work?
Apache managed to transfer request to cgi-qa-axis-rt.
I would check to see if you have 2 copies of Tomcat running, then. Because either your proxy definition isn't the one being used, or something is out there listening and responding on port 8988. Unless an application opens a port, attempts to communicate with that port will bounce.
