I want to have a persistent OpenSSL over a TCPSocket connection. The
idea is having a rails website, a backgroundrb daemon. I do keep the
connections within Model.something and I reuse them when needed.
Sadly the OpenSSL socket does not generate any timeout, etc, when the
server side disconnected (I don’t know if it did but it doesn’t work
anymore so I guess it did).
OpenSSL documentation is non existent, does anyone has a hint how to
do that ? As of today, this is how I connect :
ctx = OpenSSL::SSL::SSLContext.new ctx.key = OpenSSL::PKey::RSA.new(cert, self.passphrase) ctx.cert = OpenSSL::X509::Certificate.new(cert) ctx.timeout = 7200 s = TCPSocket.new(host, PORT) ssl = OpenSSL::SSL::SSLSocket.new(s, ctx) ssl.sync = true ssl.sync_close = true ssl.connect
Then when I use it I have (conn has the persistent connection) :
(0..10).each do begin conn[:ssl].write("something") conn[:ssl].flush conn[:socket].flush break rescue OpenSSL::SSL::SSLError => e self.reconnecting rescue Errno::EPIPE => e self.reconnecting rescue Errno::ENETDOWN => e self.reconnecting end end
Does that look good enough ? I get no error when the server is not
available anymore, sadly.
