Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP12 Administrator's Guide

Example 2: Secure Server

If you want to use SSL in the default configuration, you can simply change the listen socket to secure mode. Just as you set security in previous versions of the Sun Java System Web Server.

You can also add a new secure listen socket configured to ANY:443 and associate VS1 to the new listen socket. The virtual server now has listen sockets, one that uses SSL, and one that doesn’t. Now your server will serve the same content both with and without SSL, i.e. and deliver the same content.

Please note that the SSL parameters are attached to the listen socket. Therefore, there can only be one set of SSL parameters for all the virtual servers configured to a particular listen socket.
