A colleague was having trouble setting up client cert auth on this web app we are developing. He tried the latest tomcat 6 and 7 win32 installs using java 6 and 7 SDKs. He was able to bring up the app on HTTPS, launching it from eclipse, but even though the SSL connector had clientAuth="want" there was no client cert request when establishing the SSL connection.
I had a similar problem before because of an expired self-signed server certificate so I sent him my .keystore file with the new cert that I am using and he replaced his with mine. Still a no go. Then I sent him my own tomcat and eclipse tomcat x64 deployment config and we switched his runtime to the same as mine (latest Java 8 x64). Same problem. At this point I don't know what else to try. His setup is exactly the same as mine, but I can't get the client auth to work on his. Any ideas? -- .
