I did this

Compile curl for Windows x86_64 with openssl3 and nghttp3:

Reference to the called function BIO *BIO_new_dgram(int fd, int close_flag).

I expected the following

No compilation error. As a worakround it's possible to disable convertion check -Wno-error=shorten-64-to-32

curl/libcurl version

curl 8.6.0

operating system

ubuntu 20.04, x86_64

To reproduce it's possible to uncomment the following line in build script:

and then run the following: ARCH=x86_64 CURL_VERSION=8.6.0 TLS_LIB=openssl sh

Thanks for the report. That is indeed an unfortunate mix of OpenSSL's definition of a socket handle and Microsoft's choice of defining their SOCKET type on 64 bit platforms. See also this stackoverflow issue.

I'll add code that checks the SOCKET value before casting it to int explicitly. This will probably never fail, since Microsoft is unlikely to ever use the upper 32 bits and break many OpenSSL applications. But stranger things have happened.
