This ia a new installation with a Tomcat Web server located behind the CSS, with HTTP running between the Tomcat and the CSS. The CSS is doing SSL termination.
The client web browser successfully connects to the default Tomcat home page using an HTTPS session via the CSS, but whenever the client selects certain links on the home page, such as the Tomcat Administation link, the browser automatically switches from HTTPS to HTTP, and the page fails to load because the CSS is not expecting an HTTP session from the client. What I'm not sure about is what is causing the client to switch from an HTTPS session to HTTP ?
Hi, maybe is a problem here:
1. client requests https://domain/page
2. but server send to client 'redir' code to http://domain/page/ (slash at the end).
HTTP is correct, because server don't known something about SSL termination
try sniff connection between css and server, or css and client, if there any http redirect occurs.
solution: configure 'rewrite' on the css :)
