ERROR SSL Lib returned error: 0xffffffffffffffb4

Postby tuxlie » Mon Aug 08, 2016 5:35 pm

Win 10 updated itself and must have force-closed Newbin

Now when I try to download anything I get the following errors:

[21:13:35] ERROR SSL Lib returned error: 0xffffffffffffffb4
[21:13:35] ERROR SSL Euro Unable to start SSL to news server Error: SSL Negotiation Failed, Host: ssl-eu.astraweb.com Error: SSL Lib returned error: 0xffffffffffffffb4 10060 A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

I'm stumped !
Any ideas Quade ?
Many thanks

Looks like AW is broken. You might want to try the US server and/or try the EU server that doesn't do SSL.
