SSL Servers?

Postby rune » Mon Jun 07, 2004 7:48 pm

Anyone know if any servers plan on adding server-client support for SSL? I think I tried them all and had no successful connections.

none, currently
i beleive there may have been a patch for ratbox to do SSL client connections, but it would require an encryption PCI card, or a very beefy machine, to handle the several hundred or several thousand connections the server would get.
it doesn't mean it won't happen, just not today

Everyone else must have an X.509 certificate.
