Testing SSL Conections w/ MYSQL

P: n/a
Hi all.

I recently installed all MySQL 4.1.1 including max RPMS. During the
installation i used "--nodeps" on MAX package and at Shared-compat
cause they were requiring the libssl.0.9.6 and libcrypto.0.9.6. I am
using a RH 9 and these files are installed on my system.

The result for mysql query :

show variables like 'have_openssl';


have_openssl | YES

I created a user using the grant command with 'require ssl' like
grant insert,select on MyDatabase.* to myssluser@myhost require ssl;

Query OK
I can connect using this username and CLIENT_SSL param (isn't this
param just for php 4.3 or higher?):

mysql_connect($dbserver, "myssluser", $dbpass, CLIENT_SSL);

It runs on my php 4.2.2 compiled with openssl 0.9.7, but i need to

TEST if this is a real ssl connection.

How could i have 100% sure that it is encrypted???
Thank you all!!!
