Forum OpenACS Q&A: Trouble getting SSL to work on port 8443
GET /dotlrn HTTP/1.1
Connection closed by foreign host.
I've never seen nsopenssl be so picky about the port number before. We know the certificate is good since it works on port 443. So what else could be wrong?
This is using the AOLserver 3.3 that the installation instructions have you download from uptime.openacs.org.
the certificate doesn't care about ports one way or another. I've used (self-signed) certificate with a number of different ports.
I am running AOLServer 4.1, nsopenssl 3.0 beta 17, RHEL 3.0 and I tried port 8443 and it works fine for me with a self-signed certificate. Just thought I would let you know. I agree with Bart that the certificate and the port have no relationship ... But maybe it's a question of the configuration .. even though, this sounds strange indeed...
Just my 2 cents
Have you tried setting the nsopenssl *Trace parameters (in the nsd.tcl file) to true? They may provide helpful feedback in the log.
I have another question regarding nsopenssl and this thread may be a good place to ask. What is the cause of this error message:
