how to transfer tomcat certificate to iis

hello, we currently have a tomcat webserver that serves as a "proxy" server to one of our applicaitons.  We would like to shut tomcat down, and server up a static page letting our users know that our url has changed.  However, our iis server must be listening on 443 in order to do this.  We have had issues trying to export our ssl certificate from tomcat, and importing it into iis.

First of all is this possible? and does anyone have a process for this?  thanks.

If you have the original certificate and key that was used to configure SSL on tomcat, you can just use that, copy it to the IIS machine and install it.

If not, you can copy the kesytore, that should be in PCKS12 format, to the IIS service and install that on the windows server to use.

You can find your keystore by looking for the line "keystoreFile=" in your tomcat configuration.

Copy that file to your windows server, you may have to add a .p12 extention, and you should be able to import that onto the windows machine.

we acutally abondoned this method and opted to keep tomcat.  We figured out why our static page would not work, it was not 512k in size.  Once we made our page larger than 512k, the static page displayed correctly in tomcat.
