Re: debugging https access under emacs/w3




Well, I just noticed that the sites I claimed working in my previous
post also work with the default value of ssl-program-arguments which
in my case is :

ssl-program-arguments's value is 
("s_client" "-quiet" "-host" host "-port" service "-verify"
 (int-to-string ssl-certificate-verification-policy)
 "-CApath" ssl-certificate-directory)

It seems that the old syntax is still accepted.

Does the site Peter mentioned in his initial post work for anyone with
w3? The problem really seems to be particular to that very site. 

Sorry about the confusion in my previous post.
