py 3.4 Syntax Error

@gdude2002

This is clearly a snippet for use with Python 2.

@xfors

File "./ssltest.py", line 47
pdat = ''.join((c if 32 <= ord(c) <= 126 else '.' )for c in lin)

python-2.4.3-56.el5

@smowton

Quote the server's TLS version back at it in the HB message, otherwise you'll get false negatives when the exchange goes:

Client: Hello TLS 1.1
Server: Hello TLS 1.0
Client: HB TLS 1.1
Server: Bad version

@martinseener

Can you add support for UDP SSL Tests (for use in some SSL-VPN configs)?

@jumping

@xfors Need python2.6 to run this script.

@Dusseltier

File "./ssltest.py", line 18
return x.replace(' ', '').replace('\n', '').decode('hex')

IndentationError: expected an indented block

So PLEASE use the 'RAW' Option for Copy&Paste :)

@ninaboss56

When the program results are this what does it mean?
Connecting...
Sending Client Hello...
Waiting for Server Hello...
... received message: type = 22, ver = 0301, length = 2668
Unexpected EOF receiving record header - server closed connection
Server closed connection without sending Server Hello.
