Mmmm... mssql 2005 use a dummy certificate to get always ssl enabled.
I do tests with mssql 2005 without any problems so I think problems
was fixed. Remember to enable GnuTls or OpenSSL during configure
(personally I prefer and use GnuTls).
Protocol 7.2 is not fully supported so is disabled but protocol 7.1
works correctly and without problems.
