Yeah...I saw SNI referred to in many "generic" Apache posts but I couldn't find documentation about it for IHS for IBM i.  *Just* found the 7.2 HTTP Server for IBM i  Redbook so I'll peruse that and it does specifically state:

Server Name Indication(SNI) is an extension to the SSL and TLS protocols that indicates what hostname
the client is attempting to connect to at the start of the handshaking process. This allows a server to
present multiple certificates on the same IP address and port number and hence allows multiple secure
(HTTPS) websites to be served off the same IP address without requiring all those sites to use the same
certificate. It is the conceptual equivalent to HTTP/1.1 virtual hosting for HTTPS.

I hope there is a *good* example of a working configuration......

Once done, if done, I'll post up the working config so you won't have to experiment as much as I have....

I've tried this in the past without luck. But that was before the apache
server was able to use SNI. I haven't tried since as I want my sites to be
up. Maybe one weekend I'll give it another shot.:)
