From: Porterfield, Sean

Anybody have any idea what the following error means? I get it on both of my systems regardless of my connection method (VPN and access private IP or forward through firewall.)

3078829816:error:1407741A:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:tlsv1 alert decode error:s23_clnt.c:674:

Replying to my own post.... I just tried tn5250 on another computer with the same certificate file, and it worked fine. That computer has OpenSSL 0.9.8g while the one that doesn't work has OpenSSL 1.0.0c.

I know OpenSSL 1.0 no longer has SSLv2 enabled by default. Could that be the problem? I'm able to connect to the server with `openssl s_client -host myi5 -port 992 -ssl3` (not that I can test anything but the SSL connection there) so it seems to me some sort of misunderstanding on the encryption negotiation.

Is there a way to disable SSLv2 on the telnet server? I'm not sure if that's the right answer, but it seems like it would be a Good Thing to do anyway.
