Ok you definitely dont' have JSSE setup correctly.  This is a local problem.

Make sure you download JSSE, and put the three .jar files in 
/opt/jdk1.3.1/jre/lib/ext/  or wherever appropriate.  Also configure your 
java.security file as the docs mention.  Then you will get further than you 
are now.

  Well good luck.  I haven't got so far.  I did install JSSE but it freezes on
