[openssl-users] Openssl connecting with TLS 1.0 no matter what

Please ignore this message. This was happening because client was using saved session information to connect.

Subject: [openssl-users] Openssl connecting with TLS 1.0 no matter what


We have client and server software both using openssl. I am using the following on the server side,

c = SSL_CTX_new (TLSv1_2_server_method ());


>From the client side I am using this:

c = SSL_CTX_new (TLSv1_2_client_method ());

I have tried SSLv23_client_method and TLSv1_1_client_method and also TLSv1_2_client_method (as above) . Further I have tried setting options SSL_OP_NO_TLSv1|SSL_OP_NO_TLSv1_1.

But no matter what I try client always seems to want to communicate in TLS 1.0, which I verified from wireshark output.

Openssl version is OpenSSL 1.0.2f-fips  28 Jan 2016.

The error reported by SSL_accept on the server side is as follows:

s3_srvr.c:960 error:1408A10B:SSL routines:ssl3_get_client_hello:wrong version number

Can somebody please help me understand what I am doing wrong?

The following is wireshark output for client hello message (where TLS 1.0 can be seen):
