Carlos sent me the same data. The exception is very generic, to be
compatible with MS, and doesn't say where the decoding failed.
I'll get a look this morning (right now for me) - as our public transport is
way too much perturbed for me to get to my job within a few

Looks like there is some problem with the Mono's
System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate class.
I tried to create a certicate object using CreateFromCertFile method and a
ASN1 DER encoded certicate file  ,but its throwing exception. I did the same
thing on windows using MS .NET with the same certificate file and its
working. Below is the code snippet:-

X509Certificate cert = X509Certificate.CreateFromCertFile(certfile);
}Catch(Exception e)
        Console.WriteLine("Error:" + e.Message);

On linux it throws following exception:-
Error: Input data cannot be coded as a valid certificate.

Thanks very much.

I have made a little test trying to negotiate the Handshake protocol
against the www.nldap.com using .NET 1.0 and the SSL/TLS libraries
sources from my local tree, with success, i will try to make the same
test using mono, and update the mono cvs sources as soon as possible.
