We have tried taking the port out.

Got that fixed. We were not passing the name of the file in the URL,
and therefore were getting (nil) files created on the server (using

We were just trying to force it. The reason? Well, we were able to get
a hold of the server's log file, and noticed that the process seemed to
"hang". It never sent the "AUTH SSL" command. The server sends the
welcome message, and then waits... But our script has hanged with the
OpenSSL looking error.

We thought this might be an OpenSSL issue, but FileZilla is able to
connect to the server, and they are also using OpenSSL. We have tried
specifiying v1, v2 and v3. v1 and v3 just return a "Access Denied". v2
is the one that hangs.

Thanks for looking into this! Any more ideas of what I can try?
