SSL WebDAV issues after 5.8.4/Tomcat8

Has anyone else come across issues using WebDAV over an SSL connection since the above upgrade?  Having some trouble connecting from Windows machines that were working to map a network drive.  Just get a 'network path not found error'.  Interestingly enough I can connect from the Confluence server back to itself over SSL.  No firewalls between etc.  As mentioned this was working in 5.7.4.

If I revert to non-SSL works no problem.  Here's the SSL config out of server.xml

<Connector port="9443" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" maxSpareThreads="75"
enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true"
acceptCount="100" scheme="https" secure="true"
clientAuth="false" sslProtocols="TLSv1,TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2" sslEnabledProtocols="TLSv1,TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2" SSLEnabled="true"

Hi Michael, 

Is there any error messaging into your logs or web interface? 

I've compared my server.xml between Confluence 5.7 and 5.8 and the only difference is related to ssl protocols. On confluence 5.8.x I have:

sslProtocols="TLSv1,TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2" sslEnabledProtocols="TLSv1,TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2"


On Confluence 5.7.x, I have:


(no sslEnabledProtocols option on version 5.7). This might be affecting the SSL communication. For testing purposes, do you mind to try to use only the parameter sslProtocol="TLS" instead your current configuration?


Hope this helps.
