I just upgraded to Debian Wheezy from Lenny (long story) and a few of my Perl packages didn't make the upgrade for some reason, among them Crypt::SSLeay (libcrypt-ssleay-perl).
I was unable to connect to my credit card payment gateway using LWP until I installed libcrypt-ssleay-perl, and now it "works", but it takes 15-20 seconds to make the SSL connection due to the very unhelpful error message "error in unknown state":
(waiting 15-20 seconds...) #this comment is from waldo22
SSL_connect:error in unknown state
SSL_connect:SSLv3 write client hello A
SSL_connect:SSLv3 read server hello A
SSL_connect:SSLv3 read server certificate A
SSL_connect:SSLv3 read server done A
SSL_connect:SSLv3 write client key exchange A
SSL_connect:SSLv3 write change cipher spec A
SSL_connect:SSLv3 write finished A
SSL_connect:SSLv3 flush data
SSL_connect:SSLv3 read finished A
I have a feeling this has something to do with LWP changing the default behavior for certificate authorities and server certificiate verification:
My Perl module is using Crypt::SSLeay via LWP::useragent.
Obviously 15-20 seconds is way too long to wait to make an SSL connection, but without a more helpful error message, I don't know what to do.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to better debug this or to get more verbose output?
Thanks a bunch,
