I'm trying to set up SSL using tomcat 5.5.12.Given that I'm using Java 5.0 (JDK&JRE 1.5.06) I haven't bothered with JSSE (Java Secure Sockets Extension), since it's supposed to be included in the JRE as of version 5.0.
Using keytool I have created a keystore for localhost with the password "changeit" and I have uncommented the SSL Connector in the server.xml file, leaving the SSL port to 8443.
When I try to access https://localhost:8443, i get "Page not found screen". I could not get any help from the Tomcat logs.
I checked this command "netstart -an" in command prompt ,port 8443 was not listed. In the how_to which i downloaded from apache site ,says that the follwing should be present in server.xml file
