Folks,
I setup multple TLS connections. Before I do, i like to verify the remote certificate has been installed and is correct. I have been using SSL for years to do this. However, now that Exchange 2007 is coming online by many systems I have noticed that openssl does not appear to work with certificates installed on Exchange 2007. I get connected to the remote server, but eventually I just timeout.

Has anyone noticed this. Or, does anyone have another utility to very the remote certificate validity?

Thanks.

Do you have the CA-certificates on your system with which the Exchange servers certificates were signed?

openssl s_client -connect server:443 -CApath /etc/ssl/certs/  

You might need to add the -CApath/-CAfile to verify the CA certificate.
