News - attempting to subscribe to Slashdot.org produces handshake error


#1

Certificate error: A problem occurred somewhere in the SSL/TLS handshake. Could be certificates (file formats, paths, permissions), passwords, and others.

Anyone have an idea what’s the “real log file” with a specific “error” to the relevant issue to look out for?
This error is so explicitly vague…

Thanks in Advance!

Slashdot does not offer HTTPS for their feeds, so you need to manually prefix http:// before the url since News defaults to https:// if the protocol is omited
