Hi Chris,

Thanks very much for the reply.

You are correct. We grabbed the version from sourceforge several months ago
(v3.6). I downloaded the latest from anonymous CVS - wow. Quite a few
changes there (demuxer is now io_service, etc. etc.). I'm in the process of
rewriting our code to the latest asio.

When I'm done, I hope you (or someone with SSL experience) wouldn't mind
answering a few questions about getting SSL working. I basically just want
a simple encrypted tcp stream, with a minimal of fuss. I don't need
certificates (at least I don't think I do). All I want is the server and
client to generate keys on startup automatically and use those keys to
negotiate the symmetric cypher during handshaking. If there's an easy way
to hook that up, please let me know.

The example client/server SSL seems unwieldy. It actually makes you type a
pass phrase when the server starts. I really don't want that.
