Thanks for the info...I applied the proposed patch and now I get the following fatal SSL error

XML::Stream: new: hostname = (xxx) XML::Stream: SetCallBacks: tag(node) func(CODE(0x37f1608)) XMPP::Conn: xmppCallbackInit: start XMPP::Conn: SetCallBacks: tag(message) func(CODE(0x37f1860)) XMPP::Conn: SetCallBacks: tag(presence) func(CODE(0x37f17a0)) XMPP::Conn: SetCallBacks: tag(iq) func(CODE(0x37f1680)) XMPP::Conn: SetPresenceCallBacks: type(subscribe) func(CODE(0x37f1788) +) XMPP::Conn: SetPresenceCallBacks: type(subscribed) func(CODE(0x37f1ae8 +)) XMPP::Conn: SetPresenceCallBacks: type(unsubscribe) func(CODE(0x37f1a2 +8)) XMPP::Conn: SetPresenceCallBacks: type(unsubscribed) func(CODE(0x37f1b +a8)) XMPP::Conn: SetDirectXPathCallBacks: xpath(/[@xmlns="urn:ietf:params:x +ml:ns:xmpp-tls"]) func(CODE(0x37f1ad0)) XMPP::Conn: SetDirectXPathCallBacks: xpath(/[@xmlns="urn:ietf:params:x +ml:ns:xmpp-sasl"]) func(CODE(0x37f1cb0)) XMPP::Conn: xmppCallbackInit: stop XMPP::Conn: SetCallBacks: tag(iq) func(CODE(0x37efb88)) XMPP::Conn: SetCallBacks: tag(presence) func(CODE(0x37eff90)) XMPP::Conn: SetCallBacks: tag(message) func(CODE(0x37ef6c0)) XMPP::Conn: Connect: host(hostpart:5222) namespace(jabber:client) XMPP::Conn: Connect: timeout(10) XML::Stream: Connect: type(tcpip) XML::Stream: Connect: Got a connection XML::Stream: Send: (<?xml version='1.0'?><stream:stream version='1.0' +xmlns:stream='' xmlns='jabber:client' + to='hostpart' from='xxx' xml:lang='en' >) XML::Stream: Read: buff(<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?><stream: +stream xmlns:stream="" from="hostpart +" id="078414e9-d180-43c3-bab9-6ea07a1ae870" version="1.0" xmlns="jabb +er:client">) XML::Stream: Read: buff(<stream:features xmlns:stream="http://etherx.j"><starttls xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-tls"/ +></stream:features>) XMPP::Conn: Connect: connection made XML::Stream: SetCallBacks: tag(node) func(CODE(0x37f1728)) XML::Stream: Send: (<starttls xmlns='urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-tls'/ +>) XML::Stream: Read: buff(<proceed xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-tl +s"/>) XML::Stream: TLSClientProceed: Convert normal socket to SSL XML::Stream: TLSClientProceed: sock(IO::Socket::INET=GLOB(0x37f1e00)) XML::Stream: LoadSSL: Load the IO::Socket::SSL module XML::Stream: LoadSSL: Success XML::Stream: TLSClientProceed: Error during start_SSL: SSL connect att +empt failed with unknown error error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_S +ERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

So, is there any way to resolve this SSL error?

I have a certificate file that I point to with the command below (certificate was taken from the directory of a Windows Pidgin client install that connects to the server with no problems. (Please note that the code I am running is on a windows machine running strawberry Perl))

my $path='C:\Program Files (x86)\Pidgin\ca-certs'; my $status = $Connection->Connect(hostname=>$server, port=>$port, connectiontype => 'tcpip', tls => 1, ssl_ca_path =>$path);

Where all the variables are declared beforehand

However I have noticed that if I change the folder in the $path variable to another location that exists on my windows system I get the same SSL error so is there a fundamental problem with my Pidgin certificate?

Any further help much appreciated as have now been looking at this for a while with zero progress!
