I just downloaded the library for iOS 6 and now I cannot connect to a SSL socket (port 8443) anymore using exactly the same code as before:

CkoSocket *socket = [[[CkoSocket alloc] init] autorelease];

BOOL success;
success = [socket UnlockComponent: @"MY_KEY"];
if (success != YES) {
    return NO;
}

BOOL ssl;
ssl = YES;
int maxWaitMillisec;
maxWaitMillisec = 20000;

//  The SSL server hostname may be an IP address, a domain name,
//  or "localhost".
NSString *sslServerHost;
sslServerHost = [self getDefaultServerUrl];
int sslServerPort;
sslServerPort = 8443;

//  Connect to the SSL server:
success = [socket Connect: sslServerHost port: [NSNumber numberWithInt: sslServerPort] ssl: ssl maxWaitMs: [NSNumber numberWithInt: maxWaitMillisec]];
if (success != YES) {
    return NO;
}

The old library could connect so "success" had the value "YES". Using the new library, the value is "NO". Did I miss anything important in the release notes or could this be a bug?

Make sure to post the lastErrorText (retrieve it after a method call that fails). That will be the first thing Matt will ask when he is online.

Thanks - could have thought of that by myself... :)

Here is the log:

--ChilkatLog
Please note, that I replaced the real hostname in the log with "MyHost" due to personal reasons. If requrired, I can provide the real hostname in a private message. I tested this using 2 different hostnames and got the same result.

The problem happens on the device (mobile network 3G) as well as on the simulator (Wifi connection) when using the latest library.

Thanks for any hints...

I never used CkoSocket, but you could try to enter an IP address (just to check if it is the GetHostByName causing this issue).

Good luck.

Using the IP address results in the following log:

GetHostByName seems to be at least a part of the problem - now the handshake fails according to the log.

I will leave this to Matt, he should be online in one or two hours ;-)

Oh, please enclose those lastErrors with html <pre> and </pre> tags - a bit more readable.

Thanks Gert! I'll have a look to see if there's something wrong with the iOS 6 build.

The initial problem is that "https://MyHost" is not a hostname, it is a URL. The hostname should be either a domain name, or an IP address. It should not be a URL.

I tested the same on iOS6 but did not reproduce the problem. If you are able to provide the IP address, I'll be happy to try connecting to it.

PS> Also, there were numerous existing Chilkat customers all needing iOS6 builds, and I haven't received any problem reports from them...

Matt,

Are you just suggesting to Chris he should use MyHost instead of https//MyHost

(or 1.2.3.4 instead of https://1.2.3.4)

Yes.

A URL is something like this: "http://www.chilkatsoft.com/"

A "hostname" is a domain name or IP address, such as "www.chilkatsoft.com" or "64.65.53.234"

(Sep 18 '12 at 17:06) chilkat ♦♦

Thank you for the clarification. I just retested it using the domain name instead of the complete URL (although this was working in the previous version of the library) and the result is:

  • It is working now when using the simulator (tested iOS 5.0 and iOS 6.0 simulator)
  • It still doesn't work on the device (iPhone 4, iOS 5.1.1, tested 3G and WiFi)

This new build may solve the problem:

http://www.chilkatsoft.com/preRelease/Chilkat-9.3.2-IOS-6.0.zip

There have been numerous issues reported by many Chilkat customers having to do with the new iOS 6 device builds (the simulator build is reported to work in all cases).

The solution was to build the Chilkat libs with a lower compiler optimization setting. There must be some invalid optimized code produced by the llvm-gcc-4.2 for the armv7 and armv7s devices. The optimization has been changed from "-Os" to "-O1". This has solved the problems of all customers that have so far tested the new build.
