Error messages fill up the log; AJP misconfigured?

Hi,

I get the following entrys in cataline.out each second:

<code>
org.apache.jk.common.MsgAjp processHeader
SEVERE: BAD packet signature 18245
</code>
and
<code>
org.apache.jk.common.ChannelSocket processConnection
SEVERE: Error, processing connection
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException
at java.io.BufferedInputStream.read(BufferedInputStream.java:339)
at org.apache.jk.common.ChannelSocket.read(ChannelSocket.java:645)
at
org.apache.jk.common.ChannelSocket.receive(ChannelSocket.java:602)
at
org.apache.jk.common.ChannelSocket.processConnection(ChannelSocket.java:710)
at
org.apache.jk.common.ChannelSocket$SocketConnection.runIt(ChannelSocket.java:915)
at
org.apache.tomcat.util.threads.ThreadPool$ControlRunnable.run(ThreadPool.java:690)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:798)
</code>

I found that this could have the reason in server.xml where a connector
is defined:

<code>
<Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" />
</code>

It is secure to disable this connector? Does this have an impact to WebMail?

Bernd
