In some cases, the http.ssl_version property may not work as expected when trying to set it to TLSv1 for SSL connections in certain programming languages or libraries. The reason could be that the underlying SSL/TLS library used by the application does not support the specific version, or it might be overridden by other settings or configurations.

If you are trying to set http.ssl_version to TLSv1 in a specific language or library, and it's not working, here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Check SSL/TLS Library Compatibility: Ensure that the SSL/TLS library used by your application or library supports the TLSv1 protocol version. Some libraries may have specific requirements or restrictions on supported SSL/TLS versions. If TLSv1 is not supported, consider using a more recent version of the SSL/TLS protocol, such as TLSv1.2 or TLSv1.3, if available and compatible with your environment.

  2. Verify Correct Configuration: Double-check that you are setting the http.ssl_version property correctly in the appropriate configuration file or code. The exact steps and syntax may vary depending on the language and library you are using. For example, in Python, you can use ssl.PROTOCOL_TLSv1 when creating an SSL context.

  3. Check for Other SSL/TLS Settings: Ensure that there are no conflicting SSL/TLS settings in your application or system configuration. Other settings related to SSL/TLS, such as certificate verification options or cipher suites, may override the specified protocol version. Review the entire SSL/TLS configuration to make sure there are no conflicting settings.

  4. Update Libraries and Dependencies: Ensure that you are using the latest versions of the libraries and dependencies in your application. Older versions may have limitations or known issues with SSL/TLS protocol versions.

  5. Test SSL/TLS Connection: Use a tool like openssl to verify that the server supports the desired SSL/TLS protocol version. For example, you can use the following command to check the TLSv1 support:

    openssl s_client -connect -tls1

    Replace with the hostname of the server you want to test. If the connection is successful, it means that the server supports TLSv1.

  6. Consider Using a Different Library: If the current library or language you are using does not provide a straightforward way to set the SSL/TLS protocol version, consider exploring other libraries or languages that offer more flexibility in configuring SSL/TLS connections.

Please note that specific steps and solutions will depend on the programming language, library, and platform you are working with. If you can provide more details about your environment and the language/library you are using, I can give more targeted assistance.
