I'm attempting to configure a wildcard SSL certificate with Tomcat 8. I've added the root, two intermediates, and server .crts to the keystore, and made the necessary changes within the server.xml file. However, after restarting Tomcat and navigating to the localhost my connection will time out. This will also occur when attempted on another machine on the network.

If I generate a self-signed certificate, add it to the keystore, and point to it in the server.xml I will get a connection (though not a trusted one).

Can someone help me figure out what exactly I'm doing wrong?
