Description Alex Liu 2013-07-29 03:08:36 UTC
When I configure ws_proxy_wstunnel module with wss:// URL the request is actually sent in plaintext which gets rejected by backend server due to SSL handshake failure.

Suggested correction,
>     int is_ssl = 0;
>         is_ssl = 1;
<     backend->is_ssl = 0;
>     backend->is_ssl = is_ssl;

This does not seem to be fixed (Bug 56515), at least I can't find the corresponding code. Eric?
