It may be an issue with openssl 0.9.8. Are you using the latest version
(0.9.8t-1)? Please check out http://cygwin.com/problems.html,
specifically this part:
Run cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out and include that file as an

It's rather hard for me to debug this issue further without access to
the server that's causing the problem. It works fine for me using SSL
against my repository.
If you're willing to let me debug against your server, please send me a
private email with the details to the address in my signature.
If not, then you might try using the "openssl s_client" command to test
further. This will use the openssl library to establish an SSL
connection with your server. It might give more details about what's
failing. Do "man s_client" for more details.
