Hi Manu,

Any chance you can get a look at the server log, there's 138 bytes
sent to stderr and it would be useful to see what that was.

It would also be handy to see the entire client side log (minus ip's
of course) then we can see the server/client versions and the
handshake process.

Regards,

Nathan
