I've got iis redirecting http traffic to a tomcat server using isapi_redirect. I need to get it working with ssl, how can I do this?

If I enable ssl with iis and try to go to https://domain/page.html (a static page) everything works correctly, but when I go to https://domain/app (set up for isapi_redirect), I get a 401.5 status code (Authorization failed by ISAPI/CGI application.)

My file:


tomcat server.xml contains:

<Connector port="8011" redirectPort="8443" enableLookups="false" protocol="AJP/1.3" URIEncoding="UTF-8"/>
