unknown protocol error when connecting to an server via ssl

Hi *,

I have just started to learn python and I am having a problem with
an python client connecting to a perl server using ssl (I tried this
with pyOpenSSL and with the build in SSL Module).

I don't want to check a cerificate, so i simply tried a

from OpenSSL import SSL

s = socket.socket(s ocket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STR EAM)
s.connect(("127 .0.0.1", 2000)

s.sendall("100 Hello\n")

ctx = SSL.Context(SSL .SSLv23_METHOD)
ctx.set_verify( SSL_VERIFY_NONE ,self.verify_cb )
ss = SSL.Connection( ctx,s)
ss.set_connect_ state()

ss.sendall("101 User\n")

when writeing the 101 I'll get an SSL23_GET_SERVE R_HELLO
unknown protocol error. If I don't do the ssl stuff, everything

I also tried this with the socket.ssl(s,No ne, None) to get a secure
socket - but I got the same error.

The server is not written by me - so I can't change that to python.
The problem is, that there is first an unencrypted socket, that is
converted to a secure socket.

the perl (server) code is something like this:

# creating a socket
$socket = IO::Socket::INE T->new(Listen => 5,
LocalPort => 2000,
Timeout => 15,
Resue => 1,
Proto => 'tcp');

# some more code

# accepting a remote connection
$session = $socket->accept;

# some more code

# convert the Socket to an ssl socket
$sslsocket = IO::Socket::SSL ::socket_to_SSL ($session,
SSL_verify_mode => 0x00)

# some more code

Does anybody know, where the UNKNOWN PROTOCOL error
comes from? I have changed the connection Mode to
SSLv2_METHOD but this gave me an GET_SERVER_HELL O
read wrong packet type error.

I have done this with python 2.3.4 under linux - and the perl stuff
is done via the IO-Socket-SSL package.

Hello I posted a thread about this a while back, but I can't actually find it again so I can reply to it with the solution I found, so I'm making a new thread and hoping it goes to the top of the Google search results for the error like the previous thread. This is actually a solution to a problem, not a call for help, so you can stop reading now unless you're actually interested in the solution :)
