Recently updated a customer that was still running GW18.4.1 to 18.4.2.
A few days later, they called me, and GW Web stopped working with "Unable to communicate with server", and GMS also showed communication errors with one POA (which is the default one configured in GW Web).
After a little digging, I found out that while all posrts of the POA (including 7191) were listening, I would not get a certificate when trying to connect to them:
openssl s_client -connect gw01.undisclosed.dom:7191
140188125603472:error:140790E5:SSL routines:ssl23_write:ssl handshake failure:s23_lib.c:177:

Now, as we all know, in GW18.4.2, soap runs on it's own POA process now, and that process is also listening on port 17191 (when the main soap port is configured for 7191):
Oddly enough, I still *could* get a proper certificate on port 17191, but not on 7191.
A simple restart of the problem POA fixed the issue, but this is not good. There has been nothing in the poa logs that I'd identifiy as an error. The POA also wasn't restarted, it simply stopped properly handling TLS in the middle of the day for no apparent reason.
Is this a known one? Anybody else?
