Issue/Introduction

Agent properly configured and registered with Policy Server and starting up properly.
All requests via HTTPS are still not being intercepted by the agent

Cause

Tomcat was setup for HTTPS 443, while Apache was not configured for HTTPS.

Environment

Apache 2.4 (HTTP Front end)
Tomcat 7 (back end)

Resolution

Couple of things can lead into this behavior with one of them is Apache not configured properly to listen on https port.
Suggestion is to use netstat to make sure Apache is listening and accepting requests over SSL.
