Hi,

I integrate IIS with Tomcat and want to config some pages to use SSL, should I install the ssl cert on IIS or tomcat?

Thanks

As I recall, Tomcat gets installed on IIS as a handler for certain requests while IIS handles connecting to the initial request and just passes it through to Tomcat. Therefore, IIS is doing the SSL.

How to config IIS to have SSL just for some pages?

All requests starting "https" are routed through SSL handling so there is no per-page configuration.
