I'm trying to set up DRb over SSL, following the guide at  When I create the
DRbObject though, I get the error "drbssl://localhost:1111 -
#<OpenSSL::SSL::SSLError: unknown protocol>"

I'm requiring drb and drb/ssl, and you can see the connection string
I'm using.  What's wrong with this?

Okay I've gotten past that error.  Now I'm getting
"drbssl://localhost:1111 - #<OpenSSL::SSL::SSLError: sslv3 alert
unsupported certificate>"

My config for the server is
config = {
      :SSLVerifyMode => OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_PEER |
      :SSLPrivateKey =>"specs/certs/localhost/localhost_keypair.pem")),
      :SSLCertificate =>"specs/certs/localhost/cert_localhost.pem")),
      :SSLCACertificateFile => "specs/certs/CA/cacert.pem"

and my config for the client is
config = {
      :SSLVerifyMode => OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_PEER,
      :SSLCACertificateFile => ("specs/certs/CA/cacert.pem"),
      :SSLPrivateKey =>
        :SSLCertificate =>

It prompts me for the password when I create the server.  Then it
gives me that "unsupported certificate error" when I try to make a
remote call.  Any ideas?
