qt.network.ssl: QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLv2_client_method

  • I am trying to POST request to remote server. Here is my code:

    void LoginWindow::on_login_pushButton_clicked()
        const QString url = ui->server_lineEdit->text ();
        const QString username = ui->username_lineEdit->text ();
        const QString password = ui->password_lineEdit->text ();
        QNetworkAccessManager mAccessManager;
        QNetworkRequest request(QUrl(url + "/api/auth/"));
        QUrlQuery urlQuery;
        urlQuery.addQueryItem ("username", username);
        urlQuery.addQueryItem ("password", password);
        QUrl params;
        params.setQuery (urlQuery);
        QNetworkReply* reply = mAccessManager.post (request, params.toEncoded ());
        connect (reply, &QNetworkReply::readyRead, [reply]() {
            qDebug()  << "Ready to read from reply";
        connect (reply, &QNetworkReply::sslErrors, [this] (QList<QSslError> error) {
            qWarning () << "Ssl error: " << error;

    Everytime I clicked the login button nothing happens, except a message in application output tab.

    qt.network.ssl: QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLv2_client_method
    qt.network.ssl: QSslSocket: cannot resolve SSLv2_server_method

    I am using ubuntu 16.04 and Qt 5.9 . Here is a similar problem in the forum. I also installed libssl-0.98 , but still no luck.

    What exact version of OpenSSL are you using ?

    What error message did you get in your application if any ?

  • Here is the output of QSslSocket::sslLibraryBuildVersionString() OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013

    One of the reasons of that kind of message is that the version loaded at runtime differs from the one used at building time.

  • So any idea how do I solve the problem ? I can't make any GET or POST request from qt.

    What is the version of OpenSSL you are currently using on your system ?

    How did you install Qt ?

    What exact version is it ?

  • I am noob in Qt so I think my code is not correct . I installed Qt 5.9.0. from official offline installer and openssl version is OpenSSL 1.0.2g 1 Mar 2016

    Then first check with the distribution provided Qt so you'll be sure whether it's your code that has a problem.

  • I'm having this problem
    Qt version: 5.6
    Ubuntu 14.04
    OpenSSL: OpenSSL 1.0.1f 6 Jan 2014
    Before I used Qt 5.2 and don't get this problem.
    How to build to app don't show this warning.
