OpenSSL is an open source toolkit that implements the SSL and TLS security protocols. We have made Windows installation packages available for OpenSSL 1.1.1w which was released on September 11, 2023.
The SocketTools Library Edition has function prototypes and constants available for the Clarion programming language. The minimum supported version of Clarion is 8.0 and we recommend that you use the latest version of SocketTools in your projects.
SocketTools 11 includes Windows Installer (MSI) packages which enable you to easily redistribute the components used in your projects. They are included with the developer installation package for each edition and available for both 32-bit and 64-bit applications.

When you need to verify a connection to a server is secure, the OpenSSL toolkit can provide you with detailed information about the session and allow you to interact with the server.
This article discusses the purpose of SSL/TLS server certificates and how to create a certificate that can be used for testing purposes on your own development system.
SocketTools and Catalyst Development have by far surpassed my expectations
I’ve been very impressed with all aspects of this project, and both SocketTools and Catalyst Development have by far surpassed my expectations. We ran into a number of roadblocks on this endeavor, and I appreciate your persistence and patience, particularly with the inconsistent test environment our client provided. I am also very impressed with the functionality of our new custom control. Very slick! Once again, thanks very much for all your hard work!
The documentation is amongst the best I’ve seen and used
Great product! I recently purchased the SocketWrench library and I’m pleasantly surprised by the ease of use and exceptionally intuitive API. I wanted to replace some home-grown code with the new component and it just dropped into place and worked on the first compilation! The documentation is amongst the best I’ve seen and used, with lots of clear and concise tips and helpful information. I am very impressed with the price-quality level. I look forward to many years of mutual benefits for both our companies.
The best and most productive controls I have ever come across
Thanks for the amazing controls, the best and most productive I have ever come across. They work every time as per the detailed documentation with no gotchas. Great work.
I'm impressed with how you maintain backwards compatibility
I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with maintaining backwards compatibility. I had a VB6 program with 6 different implementations of the SocketWrenchCtl.SocketWrench class v4.5 (which was from 2006). I dropped the new in the updated .ocx file expecting to suddenly invoke 11 years worth of renamed properties, added dependencies and breaking changes. I have not yet changed a single line of code and so far (fingers crossed) it appears to be stable. I just thought I'd point that out because most devs can't go 3 months without introducing a breaking change (myself included)
