Why do I get an openssl related problem when logging into a machine?
If you see something like this:
GSS Major Status: Authentication Failed
GSS Minor Status Error Chain:
SSLv3 handshake problems
Unable to verify remote side's credentials
SSLv3 handshake problems: Couldn't do ssl handshake
OpenSSL Error: s3_srvr.c:2533: in library: SSL
the usual error is that either your machine or the machine you are connecting to has the system time not set correctly. This is especially likely if day light saving time is involved and the proxy was generated before the change.
The fix is usually straight forward. First check your machine if the time is correct and regenerate your proxy. If the problem persists, please report the problem to the admins of the machine you are trying to connect to.
