'module' object has no attribute 'ssl'


I have Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-54 and Python 2.4.3 (the
original version downloaded from python.org) and I'm
using httplib to make a request to an external server,
this is the code I'm using:

import httplib
https = httplib.HTTPSCo nnection('216.2 20.59.211',
https.debugleve l = 1
body = buildXML(data)
https.request(' POST', '/Messenger/XMLMessenger',
response = https.getrespon se()
response = response.read()
response = None
import traceback
traceback.print _exc()
return response
And I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "testPayment.py ", line 14, in preAuthPayment
https.request(' POST', '/Messenger/XMLMessenger',
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/httplib.py", line
804, in request
self._send_requ est(method, url, body, headers)
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/httplib.py", line
827, in _send_request
self.endheaders ()
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/httplib.py", line
798, in endheaders
self._send_outp ut()
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/httplib.py", line
679, in _send_output
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/httplib.py", line
646, in send
self.connect ()
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.4/httplib.py", line
1073, in connect
ssl = socket.ssl(sock , self.key_file,
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'ssl'

Anybody has an idea of what migth be happening?

Thank in advance.
Best Regards,

The socket module failed to import the _ssl module. And the ssl function
gets only defined if _ssl could be imported.

You probably haven't installed the OpenSSL-dev rpm. When the Python
configure couldn't find the SSL header files, it struck _ssl from the
list of compilable modules.

In the "empty classes as c structs?" thread, we've been talking in some detail about my proposed "generic objects" PEP.

Some of my reasons: (1) Namespace is feeling less and less like a collection to me. Even though it's still intended as a data-only structure, the use cases...

I am trying to understand how the SSL object in the socket module is supposed to be used. From looking at the documentation, I can work out that you need to pass a socket into the ssl() function, and you get back an SSL object that has write() and read() methods similar to a file object. However, what I don't get is the context you are supposed to use this object in. I thought that SSL was like a socket, but the transmission would be...
