Re: Connection Failure

From my staging server connecting to the sandbox server for AIM integration testing I am seeing the following from one staging server, but not from another.  Attempting to connect in a browser on the machine with failures I am seeing similar issues.  Is there a root certificate issue?

 

curl -v https://test.authorize.net/
* About to connect() to test.authorize.net port 443 (#0)
* Trying 64.94.118.151... connected
* Connected to test.authorize.net (64.94.118.151) port 443 (#0)
* SSLv3, TLS handshake, Client hello (1):
* Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to test.authorize.net:443 
* Closing connection #0
curl: (35) Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to test.authorize.net:443

Re: Connection Failure

Could be that one of your staging servers is using SSLv2 and another SSLv3 and the destination server doesn't support v3. What's the connection log say for the ones that are working?

Re: Connection Failure

Well, it's the same protocol, and I assume the Authorize.net server is working the same way for both of your servers, so there has to be something different between your two servers. Is the date set correctly on the one that isn't working? Having an incorrect date can cause SSL failure. Or you might not have the certificate authority that Authorize.net is using in your list of approved certificate authorities.

Re: Connection Failure

Do you know what certificate authority authorize.net is using?  I'll check on the date/time problem as well
