No problem Andrew :) Yeah understand exactly where you are coming from though that type of C and internal Asterisk code knowledge is way beyond me :( I am guessing that it would be quite a major change as it affects so many elements within Asterisk; and by virtue of that would be quite a while before we would see it introduced ?

Unless all companies are using wildcard commercial certs then this will start to hit a lot of people as they begin to explore the functionality within Asterisk 1.8.  I appreciate that you could just switch to HTTP though for the security conscience companies who run secure connections between all internal servers it would not be a very good compromise.

Thoughts on how we could get the ball rolling ?
Thanks, Phil
