Subject [users@httpd] Apache gives SSL Library error complaining about common name - Help
Date Tue, 23 Jan 2007 01:20:37 GMT
I have posted this question earlier but got no response. I am stating it 
again. Please help with some ideas.
I have a certificate installed for my domain from Thawte. Now if anyone 
tries to access the webpage using a browser it works perfect.
One of our clients has a proxy server. When they access to our website using 
their proxy they cannot access it. They get 500 Internal Server Error. Our 
logs indicates the following error:

[debug] ssl_engine_kernel.c(1762): OpenSSL: Read: SSLv3 read client 
certificate A
[debug] ssl_engine_kernel.c(1781): OpenSSL: Exit: failed in SSLv3 read 
client certificate A
SSL library error 1 in handshake (server
SSL Library Error: 336151570 error:14094412:SSL 
routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert bad certificate Subject CN in 
certificate not server name or identical to CA!?
Connection closed to child 1 with abortive shutdown (server

Now according to them they are doing everything perfect as they can access 
another of our SSL server perfectly well. What am I missing - I am sure our 
SSL certificate is valid as browser does not give any error.
I am not using Client certificate authentication as I have SSLVerifyClient 

Any help is appreciated.
