I am trying to connect to an IRC server. I am receiving the following error:

Sending 95 bytes of handshake data
State is I_CONTINUE_NEEDED (size=0, extra=0)
Received 975 bytes
State is $80090331 (size=975, extra=0)
... (repeats a few times)
Negotiations took too many packets

Connection failed. Error: SSL failure

Does anyone know what is happening and how to fix it?


Apparently, XChat uses the Windows SSL library if OpenSSL is not installed. So, just installing the open SSL library fixed the problem http://www.mirc.com/ssl.html
