[Operators] Need help with observatory non-results

I'm currently building XMPP support into nginx so it can act as a proxy
and SSL terminator. I'll write more about it later. Suffice it to say,
its a rather unusual implementation by XMPP standards.

I'm trying to run the observatory against it to see how it looks:


What's currently there is the extent of the results it provides:
certificate score, SASL and STARTTLS support and certificate chain.
After a long, long time (hours), it eventually changes to "test failed"
with no further details.

On the server side I see, right at the start of the test:

2015/01/12 19:38:11 [info] 514121#0: *632 client
connected to 2015/01/12 19:38:11 [info] 514121#0: *632
SSL_do_handshake() failed (SSL: error:140760FC:SSL
routines:SSL23_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:unknown protocol) while in starttls
state, client: using starttls, server:
2015/01/12 19:38:26 [info] 514121#0: *633 client
connected to 2015/01/12 19:38:26 [info] 514121#0: *633
SSL_do_handshake() failed (SSL: error:1408A10B:SSL
routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:wrong version number) while in starttls
state, client: using starttls, server:
2015/01/12 19:38:41 [info] 514121#0: *634 client
connected to

and no further connection attempts or traffic.

Since I have a few clients that I'm testing with and all are able to
connect properly, its hard for me to see what the problem is. I'm quite
sure its my problem since this is such a weird server, but I don't know
where to start looking.

I'm not sure who looks after the observatory. I'm hoping there's a log
in there that will show exactly what's going wrong. If anyone can help,
please contact me (this address for email, robn at fastmail.fm on XMPP).

Thanks, Rob N.
