I am facing a strange issue with TomCat application . But before all getting in to a conclusion that application could be the culprit let me explain the situation.
Application runs on tomcat which is having a ssl running on it. Server running ths application is also opened for port 25 and 80 and through PIX we are able to reach 25 and 80 with out any issue But when application listens to 443 pix behaves in a weired way.
i have debugged it with sh conn it is connection is getting in .. but i dont know why it is not responding for application.
Then application team changed the port for to 8443 it startedworking fine..
To test whether its problem with tomcat running over application , we have bypassed firewall and directly assigned public IP and checked it it was working with out any issue on port 443.
again we reverted back to pix , issue still persist , when aplication changed to all the others ports its working fine, but with 443 HUH!!! its not. For all your information we are using certificates also.
Now since customer wants this at any cost on 443 , we have replaced PIX from natting and dedicated PIX only for VPN site to site and natting and all those features are done by an ISA server.
and currently it is working fine. Do any one has any idea.. about why tomacat and pix is behaving in this cruel WAY :-)
I need to provide a solution or reason.. and nothing is blinking .. helping hands please. techies I am waiting for you
