IO::Socket::SSL install problems

on Aug 07, 2020 at 23:04 UTC ( #11120486=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello smart monks, I'm trying to install IO::Socket::SSL from CPAN on a windows 10 server and it keeps on hanging. I've tried shipping the connection tests and a force install and I get to the point below where it sits for hours. Any help on how to get past this would be greatly appreciated. Terminal output is right below:

# connect to 0: success reuse=0 version=TLSv1_3 t/session_ticket.t ................ 1/6 # connect to 0: success reuse= +1 version=TLSv1_3 # connect to 1: success reuse=1 version=TLSv1_3 # connect to 1: success reuse=0 version=TLSv1_3 # connect to 0: success reuse=0 version=TLSv1_3 # connect to 0: success reuse=1 version=TLSv1_3 t/session_ticket.t ................ ok t/sessions.t ...................... ok t/set_curves.t .................... ok t/signal-readline.t ............... skipped: signals not relevant on t +his platform t/sni.t ........................... ok t/sni_verify.t .................... 1/17

    Note that Srawberry Perl-5.30.3 already ships with (latest) IO-Socket-SSL-2.068, and Srawberry Perl-5.30.2 ships with version 2.067.

    If you're happy to skip the hanging test you can just go into the IO-Socket-SSL build directory and change t/sni_verify.t to a different file extension. (I usually change the extension from ".t" to ".t_hide".
    Then you can cd into that IO-Socket-SSL build directory and run make test. (The t/sni_verify.t_hide script will be ignored.)
    Then, if you're happy enough with the results of that, you can run make install.

    But if you want some assistance in getting the hanging script to test correctly, we'll need at least the output of perl -V.
    Even then, a solution is not guaranteed.

    I see a couple of bug reports have been filed recently about this. (Here and here.)
    I guess you filed one of them ?

    You could even open an issue with Strawberry Perl.
    Strictly, since they're providing the module, they're probably not obliged to concern themselves with such an issue.
    But some there might already have some knowledge of this problem that they're prepared to share.


      Hi Rob, your fix worked perfectly. Thank you very much for taking the time to look into and solve the problem for me. Very much appreciated.
