How to connect using SSL unreal4 with xtheme

How to connect xtheme services with unreal4 using ssl
because if you use without SSL will be rejected by Unreal, and when using SSL can not connect.
I already use SPKIFP can not.

I don't know xtheme myself but in general if you use SSL/TLS then you would have to set some options on the services side as well, and make it use the correct server port (one with SSL).

Most networks run services on the same machine as one of the IRC servers, like a hub, so they connect to localhost. In case of localhost you can do without SSL/TLS.

Yes, I was first confused why should I use ssl.

and finally I tried using another shell, it turned out it could be without SSL

but this one shell can not connect without SSL and must use SSL notification

I'd suggest asking the xtheme people. I know the UnrealIRCd-side of SSL/TLS is ok, since we have many clients and servers connecting to it daily. So it's either a configuration mistake (usually wrong port) or an issue in the client (confusing term, but in this case meaning xtheme).
Best to ask them, I presume linking over SSL/TLS isn't new to them.

Afterwards, perhaps post here once you solved the issue, so others can benefit from it.

Yes, the universal issue is fine, I assume my xtheme and shell (Debian) are the problem

because when I use the shell (Ubuntu) when the link to unreal without SSL works. For that now I use the one without SSSL.
