CA Certificate Error - Solved

    bipperred - 2012-10-21


    I have tried to use esniper in the past, but always had problems with CA Certificate errors. I tried the suggestion of downloading a new certifcate, or downgrading my version of curl/openssl but nothing worked.

    I have now found a solution, as detailed here :

    Uninstalling libcurl4-cares-dev, libcurl3-cares, and then installing libcurl4-gnutls-dev and recompiling worked for me.

    So :
    sudo apt-get remove  libcurl4-cares-dev
    sudo apt-get remove  libcurl3-cares

    ( I also remove sudo libcurl4-openssl-dev, but I am not sure this is required)

    sudo apt-get install  libcurl4-gnutls-dev

    and then in the untarred ensiper 2.27 folder
    sudo make install

    Thanks to the original posted in the Link.

    A different curl/ssl related issue

    Apparently there is some issue with openssl strict implementation of certificate standards, or something similar. 
    curl can be built with openssl or gnutls.

    On my gentoo box I had to rebuild curl to use gnutls instead of openssl, and the intermittent problems went away.

    I had similar problems on ubuntu 12 after compling the source for the latest esniper from sourceforge. Thanks.
