GENERAL_MSG_CAT_SSL_ERROR: Connection failed to host during replay of the script

Hi,

I am using LR 11.52. During recording of the script, application shows a certificate error and I proceed with that and able to record the script. 

However during reply when script trying to establish SSL connecting, getting the above error.

 

Can anybody suggest what could be the issue and how to fix it?

 

Thanks

Thanks

Re: GENERAL_MSG_CAT_SSL_ERROR: Connection failed to host during replay of the script

Hi All,

 

Figured what is the issue. Here is the background 

 

Our application host on MS Azure and the machine I am using is inside our org intranet behind the firewall. So direct connection was not possible. So I had to use proxy server. 

 

By manually checking thru firefox connection log I can see for SSL connection, application is using SSL version TLSv1, however while running the script from LoadRunner, by default it is sending SSL version SSL2/3. This is the root cause causing the problem. So below line did the trick by forcing LR to run SSL version TLS.

 

web_set_sockets_option("SSL_VERSION","TLS);
 
This resolved the issue. 
njoy .. 

 

Thanks
Deb
