I’m not very familiar with Tomcat, but normally don’t you have to actively configure it to use secure sockets if it is being used for a stand alone web server? The only thing that comes to mind is that you may be using Tomcat as a Servlet/JSP container behind a primary web server. In that case, I think that you would need to configure that primary server to handle SSL requests. Like I said, I’m not very familiar with Tomcat, so perhaps someone more knowledgeable can be of more help.
