Description

C2S SSL works nicely, but S2S fails miserably.

I do not recall perfectly, but using tshark i saw an unencrypted dialog containing the server password, so there must be a problem in the libratbox ssl code or in the ratbox-ircd ssld code. I need to do more debugging and probably contact Gilles.

As having a fully securised network has not been advertised, this is not a security issue.

I contacted the authors on the ML a few weeks ago, but seems no one cares/is able to help me. One of them just told me the GNUTLS code was not well tested.
