Ok thanks for the feedback. You aren't behind a proxy server or anything, right?
This lastest build is against the 10.5 SDK, and is hard linked to OpenSSL. In other words, if the compatible OpenSSL library wasn't on your system, the application would crash. So, this cannot be an issue with finding and loading OpenSSL anymore.
Thanks cye. I will be posting (yet another) version today. Apple released a security update earlier this year, which broken OpenSSL for 10.5.8 and others. Yet they did not update their 10.5 SDK OpenSSL headers to reflect the security change.
