Tomcat/JAVA/Web Server/SSL - troubles

Hi,

I am running my web application on Tomcat 4.1.x (configured with IIS) and found out that Tomcat seems to have a bug under the following circumstances:

A user can access my web application without problems. But the download of an applet fails when:
- JRE 1.4.1 is installed
- Tomcat is running with IIS (AJP-Connector)
- SSL
- a user context is passed from IIS to Tomcat (REMOTE_USER)
- sessions are used to grant access to the applet (servlet filter)

Does somebody know why this happens under these circumstances?

I would appreciate you help,
regard,
Robert.

I suspect that IIS is trying to serve the .class files directly, just like it would serve image files, so Tomcat never sees the request.
