CloudMonkey SSL Problem

If you’re getting SSL handshake problems when connection your CloudMonkey client to a CLoudStack instance, like this

Error Connection refused by server: [SSL: SSLV3_ALERT_HANDSHAKE_FAILURE] sslv3 alert handshake failure (_ssl.c:618)

Try finding the cloudmonkey file requester.py and comment out the lines

session.mount('https://', SSLAdapter(ssl.PROTOCOL_TLSv1))

That should fix the problem. This solution was given to me by one of the support staff of my cloud host after I’d spent hours trying to find a fix online, so I thought I’d post it here.
