hi all,

Question. An application is connecting via a proxy to the application server that is handling clients requests. The server got updated, now when client connects to server (still via proxy) we get "connection to server failed". If you disable on client to go via the proxy it works. We can see in the trace file from proxy appliance that 3 way handshake is successful, the client sends it's CLIENT HELLO but the response is alt text

Would it be better to capture on the proxy and server at same time ? Does the client negotiate the SSL/TLS session with the server directly or client --> proxy and proxy --> server ?

Thank you!

You're asking al the right questions yourself already. Have a look at the proxy -> server connection setup, which seems to fail.
