Hi,all
I am using Windows2000(sp2)+WebSphere4.03 AE.
I want to start servlet using ssl. So, like the case of 3.5x, I added "*:443"
to a virtual host's alias, and did re-generation of plug-in.
snoop moved by url below after that normally.
https: //localhost/servlet/snoop.
So, I thought that snoop moved using ssl.
But the method of setting up using a security center is written to the
following contents of infocenter.
"6.6.18.1a.7 : Configuring SSL in WebSphere Application Server."
It seems that it is necessary to set up ssl for an application server
according to this.
Can't it communicate only by adding a port using ssl?
What differs, the method which I did, and the method of infocenter,
as for an execution result?

It depends where you want to have a SSl communication.
1 - You can have one only between your browsers and your webserver. Then refer to the doc about SSL with webServer (Apache ?)
2 - If you only add SSl do your webserver, all the traffic between the web server and the application server is not protected. That's why you can add SSL for your application server (refer to SSL and plugin)
3 - If you are using a LDAp, you can also protect the SSL communications between WAS and the LDAP.

Hi,Bill.Thank you for your reply.
Web server which I am using is IBM HTTP Server.
And ssl between a browser and IBM HTTP Server was successful.
As I did, when "*:443" was only added to the virtual host,
is it enciphered as follows?
browser--(https)--ihs--(http)--was
