Hi Ranchers

I am trying to enforce SSL on certain pages of my web application.

I am using Tomcat 4.something

I have SSL up and running fine but I have been unable to get the pages I want to only work in SSL to not be available on the normal http connection.

Lets say for example I wanted everything in /secure dir to use SSL exclusively how would I do that?

Here's one way you can do it without being tomcat specific.
In your JSP:
<% if (!request.isSecure())
{ %>
Sorry, this webpage is only available over a secure connection. (possibly provide a link to it?)
<% } %>

Kim Jong II (North Korea's Dear Leader) said:Nuclear weapons don't kill people, people kill people.
I agree. Here's the link:
