A few months ago I was able to snipe actions on ebay with esniper. Today I get the following when I use it:

Auction 12345678901234: Cannot connect to URL https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?SignIn: SSL connect error: gnutls_handshake() failed: Illegal parameter Retrying...

I already have the latest version installed. How can I solve this?

(Ubuntu Linux 14.04)


You first need to replace libcurl4-gnutls-dev with libcurl4-openssl-dev:

sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev

(this will deinstall the gnutls library).

After that extract the sources from the installation tarball, change into the directory and run the usual:

./configure && make && sudo make install

that worked for me (ref this bug report)
