Subject [users@httpd] Apache2 mod_ssl cert error
Date Sat, 24 Apr 2004 20:54:48 GMT

I am trying to get Apache to reverse proxy (thru SSL) to Tomcat5 on a 
different box.

I have a thawte cert, and both Apache / Tomcat work fine with SSL, but 
when trying to pass an SSL session from Apache to Tomcat, Apache reports:

[Sat Apr 24 21:50:09 2004] [error] Certificate Verification: Error (20): 
unable to get local issuer certificate
[Sat Apr 24 21:50:09 2004] [error] (20014)Error string not specified 
yet: proxy: request failed to (

On the Tomcat side, I am using the Thawte certificate (in a keystore), 
and have also tried the Apache server cert/key that I've generated from 
my own CA in it's place, but I get a similar error.

If any one can help, it's appreciated.

Conversely, if any1 knows how to encrypt packets between two Linux PC's 
(apart from IPsec because that seems bust in RedHat ES3), that'd do me.
