OpenSSL Error / Unable to connect to SSL Torrent sites

I've been noticing an error in my logs where CouchPotato seems unable to connect to one of my providers (BitSoup). The username and password are correct, but the following error(s) appear in the log:

Code: Select all
09-28 01:18:26 ERROR [edia._base.providers.base] Failed to login Bitsoup: unknown
09-28 01:18:26 ERROR [edia._base.providers.base] Failed to login to: Bitsoup


Further up the log I saw this:

Code: Select all
09-28 01:19:09 ERROR [chpotato.core._base._core] OpenSSL not available, please install for better requests validation: `https://pyopenssl.readthedocs.org/en/latest/install.html`


So if OpenSSL isn't available, I'm assuming all requests made to SSL-enabled torrent sites (like BitSoup, Kickass, etc) will fail. I'm thinking this is another symptom of the recent Python security "fixes".

Thoughts Clinton?

Did some digging, and it looks as though the errors with BitSoup (and Kickass) might be unrelated to the OpenSSL error. Somebody has posted a recent issue on GitHub about KickassTorrents searches not being processed / working properly, so that's one mystery solved. As for BitSoup, not seen anything specific on that yet, but will post it up on that repo as a new issue if I cannot find anything else that looks like it might be the cause.

I recently updated the app to add Python modules lxml. This should be in App Central soon... I'll need to check to see if pyOpenSSL was included... But I thought it was.

Nope...
Will add OpenSSL and send a version to test soon
