SSL Errors

32 posts in this topic

I upgraded Synergy to 1.7.1 today (I'm on Mac OS 10.10.3) and now I cannot connect anymore. In the console on my server I see: ERROR: error:140790E5:SSL routines:ssl23_write:ssl handshake failure ERROR: secure socket error: SSL_ERROR_SSL FWIW, when I tried to start up the client, I seemed to get stuck on downloading a plugin. The name was "ns" and it never resolved. After hours of waiting, I moved on from that and tried to connect, whereupon I started getting the errors mentioned above. Now, when I restart the app I cannot find how to attempt the plugin download again. Please help, thank you.

Thanks, Jake

Exactly the same issue here too. ERROR: secure socket error: SSL_ERROR_SSL ERROR: error:140790E5:SSL routines:ssl23_write:ssl handshake failure How do you disable SSL so I can get control back again?

I just had a mess about on my ubuntu computer which is the slave and it popped up asking me to accept the finger print. It now all works. So the error is something to do with accepting the servers SSL fingerprint I believe. Hope that helps people in some way.

More information from me: My server is an iMac, my client is a Windows 7 laptop. On the windows 7 Laptop i see an option for "Use SSL encryption" that is greyed out. And I can't seem to get to the same settings screen on the iMac. I did just upgrade to the new release 1.7.2 and no change in behaviour. I haven't seen any pop ups about fingerprints or anything. I also went and installed Cygwin on the Windows 7 laptop as per the FAQ no help there either. UPDATE: So I just fixed the issue, it seems that when I tried to register the client it didn't take, I went through the wizard again and activated the product again. This time the Use SSL checkbox is not greyed out, and I got the pop up about accepting a finger print. All good now. Jake

I had this feedback from the support: "We have discovered that this tends to happen if there is a bunch of data in the clipboard. Try clearing it out (just copy a single letter or something) and see if it still happens." Still I see the issues, and with 1.7.2 I cannot redo the wizard cause the ns plugin is hold from the Synergy service on Win7. Even manually stopping the service and redoing the wizard is not helping.. Please advise! Edited by Guest

Running the server on Ubuntu Linux 15.04 (64-bit) and the client on Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (64-bit). Upgraded both installations to version 1.7.2. Received the following error on the server: ERROR: secure socket error: SSL_ERROR_SSL ERROR: error:140780E5:SSL routines:SSL23_READ:ssl handshake failure Turned off SSL and began receiving the following error on the client (sorry I don't have the full error anymore): failed to load plugin: ns.dll is not a valid win32 application Ended up working around the issue by leaving version 1.7.2 installed on the server and downgrading to version 1.6.3 on the client. Looks like the Microsoft Windows version might have a bug related to the ns.dll library. I will try upgrading the client version at the next release and see if things are better.

Marshall - If you clear out your clipboard, do you still get the errors?

Clearing the clipboard on my OS X client and my Windows "server" allowed the OS X client to display the fingerprint message and now everything seems to be working fine.

I get similar issue on Mint 17 as my server: DEBUG: loading plugin: libns.so ERROR: failed to load plugin: libns.so DEBUG1: caught cancel on thread 0x00000002 FATAL: An error occurred: libssl.so.10: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory NOTE: stopping synergy desktop process Stopping SSL is only a workaround for the moment. So what's the fix? --------------------UPDATE ----------------------------------------------------- I later found that if I used Linux Mint 17 as Client or server I got crashes and deselecting SSL in SETTINGS did not fix the problem. I then did some more digging and found, as reported by others, that Mint 17 and 17.1 is still using the old SSL v1.0.1f build. :geek: Take a look in this forum post : [url]http://synergy-project.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=138[/url] and rebuild your SSL system. The code in the first post worked fine for me so it was obviously edited by Speaker after the later comments. Now have it all working! :D

Synergy server can't connect to client randomly. I created logs by copying text from log area of the window, because /var/log/synergy.log doesn't exist. See the attachment. P.S.: What's wrong with the forum? I posted this message at 11 may 2015, but it shows 06 may 2015.

Didnt work for me, - Tried running wizard - didn't work (get a message about fingerprint acceptance and then crashes) - Tried system restart - didn't work - Tried disabling encryption - didn't work Nothing seems o be working at this time, Clueless what the next steps are. I'm running Win7 on Server and client. [quote="Dave Rowe"]This worked for me. Thanks!
