fingerprint SSL check does not work behind a proxy
If you have a printer for which a signed binary driver is available via OpenPrinting (newer Epson inkjets) then the download of the signature key file does not work and so the driver installation does not complete.
See this mail from Olaf Meeuwissen from Avasys (they make drivers for Epson):
Saito-san and I have been looking at how well the automatic download
works when behind a proxy. Short story: it doesn't. The long story

That's what we did. We've been looking at jockey debug logs, wireshark
network traffic captures and the jockey code trying to figure out where
things went wrong. According to the logs, the query of the OpenPrinting
DB went just fine. It's getting the fingerprint that bombs. Using wget
to fetch the fingerprint in the same environment works fine.

We've chased the WARNING statement down to the connect method of
sock = socket.
self.sock = ssl.wrap_
cert = self.sock.
hostname = self.host.
if not self._validate_
The ssl.wrap_socket raises an ssl.SSLError. What puzzles us is that
this method creates a connection to the _proxy_ rather than to the host
where the fingerprint resides. The wireshark capture for a wget went
straight to the latter host and negotiated TLSv1 with the proxy on the
We've also played with passing different ssl_version parameters to
ssl.wrap_socket but that didn't help. We're not sure whether this
method negotiates a usable version but if it doesn't that something that
probably needs fixing as well.
Hope this helps,
Can this get fixed in Natty? Thanks.
