Why does SSL not connect, but does not raise any errors?

I am supporting a legacy application (in C#, using SSL COM components) which seems to work on the deployed servers. Unfortunately I cannot get it to run properly on my development machine.

As far as I can recognize it uses SSL to subscribe to Reuters data:

_sslContext = new SSLContext();
_sslContext.HostList = reutersSettings.HostNames;
_sslContext.UserName = reutersSettings.UserName;
_sslContext.PortNumber = reutersSettings.Port;
_sslContext.FidDBKey = reutersSettings.FidDbKey;
ContextPool contextPool = new ContextPool();
Context context = contextPool.GetDefaultContext();
context.ContextConnectionEstablished += OnConnectionEstablished; context.ContextConnectionLost += OnConnectionLost;

_sslContext.Connect();

The Callbacks "OnConnectionEstablished" or "OnConnectionLost" are never actually called and no Exception is thrown.

The object "reutersSettings" holds information from our App.config which I just copied from our server.

Can anyone please give me some advice on what might be going on?

Thanks!
Wolfgang

Up to 2 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 512.0 KiB each and 1.0 MiB total.

Can you test this with the CSharpExample example in SSL COM package?

Have you tested your server with the example provided by Jirapongse? and Can you share the result?

Thank you, I have found the issue in the meantime. It was unrelated to the Reuters Client - our firewall was the culprit.
