Can multiple https ports be setup with one tomcat 5.5 server on unix ?  If there's a main web application on 443, can I have another application on another https port using a different keystore all on the same server?

    HTTPS requires a dedicated IP Address.  You can setup multiple ports, but they will need to be on their own IP addresses.  You should be able to bind multiple IP's to the server.

    There is only one SSL port and that is 443, browsers will only send data on that port.

    There is only one SSL port and that is 443, browsers will only send data on that port. will work if the website is bound and listening on it.  It's just not user friendly to start changing ports.
