[jboss-user] JBoss and SSL

Hi everybody,

I have an issue setting JBoss according to this page: 
http://www.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=SSLSetup,  authentication 
scenario no. 3.

I'm using jboss 4.2.2.GA and JDK 1.5.0 update13.

Everything at step 3 went according to the description there: ant 
builds, certs import into the browser, jboss settings.

The connector part in server.xml is as follows:

        port="8443" address=""
        maxThreads="100" strategy="ms" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
        scheme="https" secure="true" clientAuth="true"
        sslProtocol = "TLS" />

The server.keystore and server.truststore are in place as well as 
everything else. JBoss does not have APR enabled.

The problem is that if I'm trying https://host:8443/ it just connects to 
8443 (I can see it with netstats) and that's all.
The browser used was Mozilla Firefox.

I'm not warned/prompted for anything and after a while the connection 
dies, of course.

I'm completely unaware about all the mechanisms that make JBoss work. 
I'm trying though.

Can you give me a hint about what's to be done in order to make it work 
with this auth scenario?
