Why is a self signed certificate a cause for failing??

BTW, rather than using self-signed certs, get your certs from cacert.org (which is included in cvsnt's ca.pem so that's one less thing to worry about). I'm not a great fan of self-signed certs, well, not unless you also have setup a CA to go with them to deal with CRLs, etc. Tony: what changes are you making to SSL/sserver: Checking peer certificates? Checking CRLs? It might be handy if cvs info could also provide some of the info from the server's certificate too -- David Somers VoIP: FWD 622885 PGP Key = 7E613D4E Fingerprint = 53A0 D84B 7F90 F227 2EAB 4FD7 6278 E2A8 7E61 3D4E
