 Replying to [comment:3 deryni]:
 > As to what is going wrong it looks like pidgin is trying a verson of
 SSL/TLS that the server is either not expecting or is configured not to
 accept (assuming I understand that openssl error correctly). Can you check
 the server configuration for SSL support? Are you perhaps not allowing TLS
 or something of that sort?

 From how I understand it, it is configured correctly:

 <id realm='' require-starttls='true'

 With following description:
          If this is enabled, clients must do STARTTLS
          before they can authenticate. Until the stream is encrypted,
          all packets will be dropped

 > A separate issue would be trying to determine whether or not the server
 is attempting to send the error message and failing, not trying at all, or
 trying and somehow pidgin isn't getting or understanding it.

 I will attach a wireshark log from a connection attempt. From a first look
 at it pidgin is indeed sending a request to which the server does not send
 an answer. I will also attach a wireshark log from PSI connection attempt.
 I hope it helps even if most of it is encrypted.

 I also tried to disable encryption on both ends and then it works.
