App requires port 8081, gets errors using HTTPS

am 17.11.2010 21:31:36 von Crooked River

I have a third-party XML application compiled into Apache as a module that
requires using port 8081. I have run it successfully for years using HTTP
on Apache 1.3.27 (the version required by the vendor), but now I need to run
it using HTTPS.

So, I installed openssl-0.9.4 and mod_ssl-2.8.14-1.3.27 and the installation
seemed to go well except for the question "File to Patch: ", which I had to
skip since I had no answer for it.

The application still runs fine when I browse to, but
when I try HTTPS using I get a message that "Secure
Connection Failed - SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum
permissible length (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)." An error
codes reference says, "This generally indicates that the remote peer system
has a flawed implementation of SSL, and is violating the SSL specification."

The Apache error log says "Invalid method in request \x16\x03\x01"

Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this?
