( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Well I made some progress based on these suggestions. What I did so far is this:

  • Copied HTTP::Daemon and modified it as rob_au suggested to make an SSL version;
  • Used that base to create an SSL proxy in addition to the existing HTTP proxy I already had. This was done by subclassing the proxy class I already had and overriding the creation of the daemon with the SSL version;
  • Created a server certificate. This is where most of the time went. Creation of server certificates was a bit new to me and not really clearly documented in the OpenSSL docs.

At this point I had two proxy server classes: one for HTTP and one for SSL. I built two stub servers using those and fired them up. The results so far are that I can connect to the SSL proxy fine and it's able to see the HTTP traffic going back and forth if I send it the requests explicitly. But I can't get the server to be used as a true proxy by setting it in the browser. When I do that, OpenSSL complains when it sees the clear text CONNECT request, spitting out this proxy error with DEBUG on:

error message: 'SSL_accept: 'error:1407609B:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_CLI +ENT_HELLO:https proxy request
So it looks like OpenSSL wants some special set up for proxies I'm not seeing just yet ... either that or it explicitly prohibits them.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
