PingAccess Windows service will not start


Once Ping Access is installed and configured as Windows service. The service then fails to start.

One possible most common issue is with JAVA_HOME environment variable. 


Check if JAVA_HOME env and set at SYSTEM level not just USER level if not already set. It may be necessary to restart the Windows server to pick up the system variable change.

Then try starting the service again.

How to enable HTTPS / SSL in Tomcat with self signed certificate

Below steps tested with Tomcat 9.0.11 on both Windows & Linux machine.

Open command prompt/terminal and execute below keytool command to create a new key store with a self-signed certificate by replacing the alias and keystore values.

keytool.exe -genkey -alias <<certaliasname>>-keyalg RSA -keystore <<location to save keystore>>\<<keystorename>>

provide the details of the certificate as it asks questions.

Open server.xml file from <<TOMCAT_HOME>>/conf/ location

and add below text by replacing keystoreFile and keystorePass values.

 <Connector port="8443" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol"
               maxThreads="150" SSLEnabled="true" scheme="https" secure="true"
               clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" 
               keystoreFile="<<path to keystore file>>"
       keystorePass="<<keystore password>>" />

then restart the tomcat server and access https://<<hostname>>:8443
