You do not say what OS you are running on. Solaris 11 has a known problem with not reporting queued data. This was fixed by SRU-28.

Subject: My client can not receive data in blocking mode


I'm using openssl as client in blocking mode , i have a problem .
Sometimes my program can't  receive data , and acctually server has been sent the data to me.
I can only  receive the data by sending another request . Then the data i expected arrived with a new data sent by server .

bool can_read()
            return true;
struct timeval tv = {0 , 100};
       FD_SET(m_socket.fd(), &m_rfds);
int ret = select( m_socket.fd()+1, &m_rfds , NULL, NULL, &tv);
return ret > 0 ;

//this is the main process
int try_receive(char * buf , int len )
if( !can_read())
return -1;

return SSL_read(m_ssl, buf, len);
 Above is my code ,  my program get `false` from `can_read` although the server has sent response data
 I really appreciate your help.
