Re: [jetty-users] Jetty ssl port not open for secure websockets

Stick with stackoverflow, its more durable and its results show up on google results in a much better position than the jetty-users mailing list.

Your question over there was answered btw.

I'm writing a server app that uses secure websockets using embedded Jetty 9.3.0.M2. When I run it without secure sockets, everything is copacetic, but when I enable the secure sockets, my clients get connection refused and nmap shows that the port is closed. There are no errors in the log on the server side.

I believe that my .jks, .crt, .pem, and .key files and my keystore password are all correct, because other apps on this same server are using the same ones and are working.

Here is the code that launches the Jetty server. Everything works when it uses the regular socket.

if (keyStorePath != null) {
    // use secure sockets
    server = new Server();
    HttpConfiguration https = new HttpConfiguration();
    https.addCustomizer(new SecureRequestCustomizer());

    SslContextFactory sslContextFactory = new SslContextFactory();
    ServerConnector sslConnector = new ServerConnector(server,
            new SslConnectionFactory(sslContextFactory, HttpVersion.HTTP_1_1.asString()),
            new HttpConnectionFactory(https));
    server.setConnectors(new Connector[] { sslConnector });
} else {
    // use regular sockets
    server = new Server(port);

ServletContextHandler servletContextHandler =
        new ServletContextHandler(ServletContextHandler.SESSIONS);
ServerContainer container =
server.start();"Started server: " + server);
if (server.getConnectors().length > 0) {"Connector = " + server.getConnectors()[0] +
            " isRunning=" + server.getConnectors()[0].isRunning());
When keyStorePath is not null (meaning use secure sockets), the log looks like this:

The error in my _javascript_ console is "Error in connection establishment: net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED"

When keyStorePath is null (meaning use sockets), the log looks like this:

And the app works great from the browser. I'm stumped. I have tried many permutations of the code to set up the SSL, but to no avail. Thank you for looking at this.
