Description Brian Ward 2015-08-30 22:52:47 EDT
Description of problem:
Similar to Bug 1232349. 
Pidgin fails to connect over SSL on an XMPP based server. Got the error: "SSL Handshake failed".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Update to latest FC22 packages as of 8/30/2015:
nss-3.20.0-1.0.fc22 (maybe affected?)
openssl-1.0.1k-12.fc22 (maybe affected?)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install of FC22 from Live USB (downloaded 8/30/2015)
2. Updated all packages (8/30/2015).
3. Installed pidgin (8/30/2015).
4. Setup pidgin to connect to XMPP secured server.

Actual results:
"SSL Handshake failed".

Expected results:
Connection and buddy list shown.

Additional Info:
I performed a rollback to the FC22 installation before updating all packages, then installed pidgin, and everything worked fine.

At least 3 others I work with have reported this problem on FC21, with latest updates applied, as well.

I am having the same issue
Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2015-12-17 01:08:44 EST
Could you please provide us with a debug log? Disable all other accounts except for the one with SSL-enabled XMPP, and quit pidgin. Then switch to gnome-terminal and run

$ pidgin -d > ~/debug.log 2>&1

After reproducing the issue, please, attach debug.log to this bug.

Thank you

Debug ssl handshake error

XMPP connection attempt using pidgin:

Linux mbagnara.fedora 4.2.3-300.fc23.x86_64

I can no longer reproduce the problem.

Not sure what changes fixed the problem, but I'm running this now and it works:
nss.x86_64                         3.21.0-1.1.fc22                      @updates
openssl.x86_64                     1:1.0.1k-13.fc22                     @updates
pidgin.x86_64                      2.10.11-12.fc22                      @updates

Also Chris Pitmann (cpitman@redhat.com), managing the XMPP server, said in an email the problem was fixed as of Dec 22.  

Don't know if issue was in one of the libraries or the XMPP server itself.

Closing, per comment 6. This was very likely not a bug in pidgin, therefore I'm closing this as NOTABUG.
