Well, since this was a secure connection test, needed openssl for the
connect, not telnet. And how to do that on Windows? I DID try it on
this F20 notebook, and of course it worked just fine. That was why I
really suspected Windows TLS functions. Then when I was trying again, I
caught a little pop up in the system tray saying how the nanny software
was blocking the bad program that was trying to do https to port 995...
I really should be so harsh about the nanny software. It DOES protect a
lot of families from content they do not want to see. Just that the
defaults no longer match where we want internet privacy to go.
