requestCert causes problems #193

I'm attempting to use node-http-proxy as an SSL unwrapper and application aggregator, with SSL certification authentication.

However, when I turn on https.requestCert, errors crop up, whether or not the browser has one of the requested certs. Sometimes, the first few requests are good, but then n-h-p gets mysteriously wedged. Other times, I just get SSL errors.

I have a self-signed CA cert, a server cert signed my CA, and a client cert signed by my CA.

@astronouth7303 Have you tried a simple HTTPs server in node.js with the same certs? It could be a node.js core issue. @indutny would know more.

Not yet. I don't know node at all, sadly.

Ok, I set up a basic HTTPS server using the same options I'm using in my proxy. It's working as expected.

I'm using the npm version of node-http-proxy.
