I’m having some new issues connecting to our credit card processors
servers. I’m working under Linux (dev and production), and have tried
Ruby 1.8.7, 1.9.2 and 1.9.3 under Linux. This was working for the past
year, and just recently became a problem.
The weird thing… on Mac OS X, with Ruby 1.8.7 it connects just fine!
On Linux, when I try to connect to esqa.moneris.com it will just timeout
(or hang forever with Ruby’s default Net::HTTP timeout). Even something
simple like this hangs on my Linux box:
You’re using HTTPS there, so could there be some sort of certificate
issue? Maybe your Linux environments no longer trust the CA cert used
to sign their certificate. I’m not sure why that would cause an
apparent hang, but hopefully that helps.
I visited https://esqa.moneris.com/ in my browser, and it looks like
they have a valid SSL certificate. I’ve also tried using
OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE which also didn’t seem to make any difference.
I enabled debug output for Net:HTTP, but that didn’t give much info
