win32 openssl help request

Hi all --

I just joined the list because I saw a post (from way back in 2002) about
using ruby and OpenSSL on win32. I was wondering if anyone has had any
recent successes, and if so, what shenanigans they involved.

I'm having a heck of a time figuring out what my problem here is; I've tried
three different ways to script access to a web page and they're all failing
when tried over https -- which makes me suspect it's a problem with my
openssl; specifically, with what versions I have installed.

Samples follow:

Win32, Ruby 1.8.4p3, OpenSSL 0.9.7b for windows.
Trying to manipulate a web page. They all fail over SSL. Calls using
similar tools to non-SSL pages do not fail.

Three different approaches:

1.
-----
require 'mechanize'

$urls = [ "https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/loginForm",
"https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/login",
]

agent = WWW::Mechanize.new
agent.user_agent_alias = 'Windows IE 6'

p = agent.get($urls[0])
-----
C:\dev>ruby mechtest.rb
warning: peer certificate won't be verified in this SSL session
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mechanize-0.3.1/lib/mechanize/net-overrides/n
et/http.rb:468:in `connect': OpenSSL::SSL::SSLError


2.
-----
require 'open-uri'

$urls = [ "https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/loginForm",
"https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/login",
]

open($urls[0]) { |r|
puts "New Cookie: #{r.set_cookie}"
}
-----
C:\dev>ruby openuritest.rb
c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:237:in `open_http': undefined method
`set_default_paths' for #<OpenSSL::X509::Store:0x2c146f0> (NoMethodError)


3.
-----
require 'net/http'
require 'net/https'

$urls = [ "https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/loginForm",
"https://www112.livemeeting.com/cc/mycompany/login",
]

$uris = $urls.inject(Array.new) { |a,x| a << URI.parse(x) }

$uri_form = $uris[0]
http = Net::HTTP.new($uri_form.host, $uri_form.port)
http.use_ssl = true

r,d = http.get($uri_form.path,{})
-----
C:\dev>ruby nethttptest.rb

Sorry I can't offer specific help, but I wanted to confirm that
I've been able to use OpenSSL/Ruby on Win32, both with SSLSocket,
and 'net/https'.

My net/https code looks similar to yours:

http = Net::HTTP.new(@sitename, 443)
http.use_ssl = true
resp, data = http.get(path, nil)

This is on:

WinXP Service Pack 2
ruby 1.8.2 (2004-12-25) [i386-mswin32]

I'm not sure which OpenSSL version... the ssleay32.dll and
libeay32.dll files don't seem to have any version information.


Regards,

Bill
