Handshaking Error

With the controls from the IPWorks SSL/SSH toolkit I get the error "Error during handshake", how can I debug this?

The error is a generic error but it specifically deals with the handshake process of the SSL or SSH communication.

Please check the SSLStatus event, as well as the SSLServerAuthentication event for more information. If the Accept parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event is false, the Status parameter will tell you why. You can then set the Accept parameter to true to manually force acceptance of the server certificate.

Also, you will need to check if the server requires client authentication, if does please set the SSLCert properties of the control to point to the certificate that you need to present to the server.
