I’m using the node-request module, regularly sending GET requests to a set of URLs and, sometimes, getting the error below on some sites.
Error: 29472:error:140770FC:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown protocol:opensslssls23_clnt.c:683
The problem is that I don’t get this error always or always on the some URLs, just sometimes. Also, it can’t be ignored with “
I have read that this can be related to me sending SSL requests with the wrong protocol (SSLv2, SSLv3, TLS..). But this doesn’t explain why it happens irregularly.
Btw, I’m running nodejs on a Win 2008 server.
Any help is appreciated.
This was totally my bad.
I was using standard node http.request on a part of the code which should be sending requests to only http adresses. Seems like the db had a single https address which was queried with a random interval.
Simply, I was trying to send a http request to https.
