HTTPS with ruby 1.8.4 on Windows?



does anybody know, what to do to get HTTPS working with ruby 1.8.4 on

I get the error:

RUBY18/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:565:in connect': undefined methodverify_mode’ for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
from I:/PROGRAMS/RUBY18/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:555:in
do_start' from I:/PROGRAMS/RUBY18/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:544:instart’
from I:/PROGRAMS/RUBY18/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:1031:in
request' from I:/PROGRAMS/RUBY18/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:771:inget’
from K:/ssl3.rb:29

The same error is described here:

Solution there: “Rolling back to a clean, fresh ruby 1.8.2-15”, but I
don’t like to do this… .

For test, I used for example this code:

require ‘net/https’

url = URI.parse ‘
server =, url.port
server.use_ssl = url.scheme == ‘https’
server.verify_mode = OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE
response = server.get url.request_uri
puts response.code

I’m using:

ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-mswin32], Windows 98SE




This probably doesn’t help you much but your code ran for me
on Windows XP SP2 using two different versions of ruby 1.8.4:

ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-mswin32]
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-26) [i386-cygwin]

(One is compiled with Visual C++ and the other with gcc.)

Your code returned a response status of 302, which is a redirect,
which I believe is the correct response since the https page wants
to redirect to this page:




I got the same problem, same error, works with 1.8.2 doesn’t with 1.8.4

Did you find the problem?

Unfortunately, no.
