Hi Philip
Thanks for the reply. The odd part is when I do the openssl s_client it looks like the handshake
is successful.

That may not be the problem.  The client appears to have sent an OPTIONS
request which happens after the SSL connection has been established.

If the client has the socat proxy installed you can use the instructions

to get a network trace of the OPTIONS request and response.
