Well, in that case, you need to provide more detail. Does the handshake
complete? If not, at what stage does it fail?
A PCAP file may be needed. And you need to explain what operation
fails with SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL, and do an "strace" or equivalent to
understand what the relevant socket read calls returned.
