in thread 500 error with LWP:UserAgent

Well it's a puzzle for sure. I installed Perl and those modules with the same version you have, and it just worked with the updated code. The old code gave the same Net::SSLeay debug output as yours. There is some underlying difference between our setups obviously.

There's a chance that changing the SSL version to this would help:

SSL_version => 'TLSv1:!TLSv11:!TLSv12:!SSLv2:!SSLv3'

The last two components are supposedly redundant. But in any case, that long version string wasn't needed here (with any of 3 machines).

Update: Just as a debugging step, try adding random garbage to the string you pass into SSL_version. You should expect the following error, otherwise something is up in Denmark:

Error: 500 invalid SSL_version specified

    May i ask for your perl -MIO::Socket::SSL -e 'print "$IO::Socket::SSL::VERSION\n"' version please ?

    I just was able to test on a machine with
    perl 5.14.2
    LWP:User::Agent 6.04
    IO::Socket::SSL 1.76
    Net::SSLeay 1.48 (while mine is 1.55)
    and it just worked fine (exact same code, I scp-ed it)

      Well I configured one machine as yours to test:

    • LWP::UserAgent : 6.06
    • IO::Socket::SSL : 1.955
    • Net::SSLeay : 1.66
    • Just retried with SSLeay @ 1.55, still works fine.

      This is all testing with Perl 5.14.2 to stay as close to yours as possible. However, it may well be the underlying OpenSSL version. All the machines here are Fedora 20 boxen.. with:


      Would be interesting to see if your two machines have separate versions. By the way, on the machine that works for you, maybe give it a go with and without the SSL_version parameter.

        On the working machine, it works only with th SSL_version set as you said ('TLSv1' is enough of a version to specify). It doesnt without.

        Both machines have same version of openssl, that is to say : "OpenSSL 1.0.1e 11 Feb 2013"

        (Btw : I thank you a lot for all efforts you re doing to help me there :) )

    One good news, one bad.

    Good news is we dont need to disturb Denmark government, i achieved the 500 invalid SSL_version specified with SSL_version='Garbage'

    Bad news is changing the SSL_version doesnt solve my problem at all.

    Could it be due to perl version ? (I cant change mine here :/)
