    Hello All,

    I give up, after 6 weeks of heart ache.

    Attached is our ssl connection code is attached if any one cares,
    we still cannot make a successfull connection to Afilias.

    Any help would be gratefully received. I just don't know what is wrong.

    At this stage we won't be selling .info domain names.

    Best Regards

      I downloaded the sample C program and got connected up right away.  If you're using a Thawte certificate, you have to have the Thawte CA cert.  if you're using Openssl, you can use the openssl s_client command to debug the SSL connection.

      I am having the same problem bob is.  Bob, just wondering on you on a windows 2000 client when you are trying this?

      I'm currently using the Java-RTK! But I had also heavy trouble connecting to afilias! The thing was, that I had an VeriSign certificate which was NOT signed with the RSA Certificate. Go to ! If you want to use a VeriSign certificate it MUST be signed with the very bottom (RSA) one! Hope this is helpful! Please do not ask me, why Afilias does not support certificates signed by one of the other root-certificates. It must be something political which I do not understand. I really had much trouble because of that......
