Sorry if this sound like a pretty trivial problem, but I just can't seem to get ssl working.
I have perforce running on raspbian and everything works fine, but after trying to add ssl I get this error when trying to connect form the client:

SSL connect to ssl: failed .
	Remove SSL protocol prefix from P4PORT or fix the TLS settings.

Nothing fancy for the setup:

sudo mkdir /Perforce/sslkeys
sudo chmod 700 /Perforce/sslkeys
export P4PORT=ssl:
export P4SSLDIR=/Perforce/sslkeys
sudo p4d -Gc
sudo p4d -Gf

It said the certificate and fingerprints were created properly.

p4 set / p4 info after starting the server gives this:

If anyone has an idea of what I'm doing wrong, that'd be super helpful!
Been trying a couple of times and pulling my hair off...

How did you start the p4d server instance (which flags)? Can you grep the output of 'ps' to confirm the server is running with ssl for the port? If you do remove the ssl prefix (e.g. 'p4 -p info') does the command work?

Thanks for the answer.
Sorry, I forgot to update the thread. I managed after redoing the procedure a couple more times.

I think it had to do with the permissions on my 'sslkeys' folder somehow. Well anyway, I eventually managed! :huh:

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: ssl
