Migrating from nginx to haproxy 2.0.5 SSL issues

Hi,

We are trying to migrate nginx proxy servers to ha proxy but we are experiencing some issues. We get the following error

4431185516:error:14094410:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:sslv3 alert handshake failure:s3_pkt.c:1498:SSL alert number 40

The log is shown as follows:

XX.XX.XX.XX:3524 [10/Sep/2019:07:19:16.571] http/1: SSL handshake failure

It would be really appreciated any help :slight_smile:
Nestor

SSL alert number 40 really just means handshake failure, which is not very informative.

Do you have any additional logs from your backend server? Could it be that it just needs SNI or perhaps there is a ciphers mismatch?

Did you enfore the same TLS settings with nginx? What did that configuration look like?

Hi Lukas,

Thanks for your quick response. This is my Nginx xonfiguration.
