SSL issues with the chat
« on: May 05, 2009, 08:15:29 PM »
Yes, the chat was moved to another server, by Andy. It is up and running fine, the only thing is SSL is not working for most people apparently.

I need to clear up some confusions though. I did not setup the server nor is it running on any of my PCs. I don't actually know where it is currently. I do have some limited access to make changes and have tried doing a few things to try and correct the problem. Andy supplies the server space and bandwidth for almost nothing so, we need to work with what we have and try to resolve this on our own, until maybe he gets some time to help.

Here is what I have tried -

I have tired changing ports, to 7000 and others. Haven't heard any feedback from people about whether that worked or not.

I changed the config to accept connections on - ipaddress:6697 (for instance 74.53.87.26:6697) and *:6697 (and also *.7000).

In all cases I am able to connect but others have said they can't, though I haven't heard any specifics, like what the error messages were.

What you can do to help -

Post here with what the specific error messages are, when you try to connect. Details help...

If you have any experience with setting up irc or SSL, offer suggestions. I would love to get this working but I am having a hard time seeing what the problem is, mainly because I can connect fine.

We'll get it working eventually, hang in there and please don't let it stop you from chatting.  :-)

Thanks!

Hello Kemp, I'd really love to have SSL working again, and I've got a fair amount of experience with Linux/Unix systems and configurations. Is there any way that you can send me the config file? Thanks.

I'm almost 100% sure it has nothing to do with the IRC config. I think it has everything to do with the firewall or something like that because I and Andy can connect via SSL and I have been able to setup the main chat through Mibbit on SSL. So it has to be something other than the IRC config....

We really need Andy to chime in here.

When I have some time though I will get you the config so you can double check my work.

Ya it really does sound like something to do with the firewall. Look into that if you can, whether it's iptables or a hardware firewall, you should be able to just mimick the settings for the non-ssl port over to the ssl port so that it accepts connections the same.
