while compiling >>mcs tlstest.cs /r:System.dll /r:Mono.Security.dll 
from http://www.mono-project.com/docs/getting-started/mono-basics/ (see link under "HTTPS connections") I got following error messages:

tlstest.cs(169,23): warning CS0618: `System.Net.ServicePointManager.CertificatePolicy' is obsolete: `Use ServerCertificateValidationCallback instead'
tlstest.cs(172,23): error CS0117: `System.Net.ServicePointManager' does not contain a definition for `ClientCipherSuitesCallback'
/usr/lib/mono/4.5/System.dll (Location of the symbol related to previous error)
tlstest.cs(210,26): warning CS0618: `System.Net.Dns.Resolve(string)' is obsolete: `Use GetHostEntry instead'

I'm using Lubuntu 14.04. and mono version:
>>mono --version

Comment 1 psk 2016-01-02 19:04:26 UTC
ok, installation was not yet finished, because of unsolved dependencies.

Now I have only three warnings:
"tlstest.cs(170,23): warning CS0618: `System.Net.ServicePointManager.CertificatePolicy' is obsolete: `Use ServerCertificateValidationCallback instead'
tlstest.cs(211,26): warning CS0618: `System.Net.Dns.Resolve(string)' is obsolete: `Use GetHostEntry instead'
tlstest.cs(177,11): warning CS0219: The variable `prefix' is assigned but its value is never used
Compilation succeeded - 3 warning(s)"
Comment 2 Jim Henderson 2016-11-07 14:49:38 UTC
I got two warnings with Lubuntu 16.04.1, namely
tlstest.cs(169,23): warning CS0618: 

`System.Net.ServicePointManager.CertificatePolicy' is obsolete: `Use ServerCertificateValidationCallback instead'
tlstest.cs(199,26): warning CS0618: `System.Net.Dns.Resolve(string)' is obsolete: `Use GetHostEntry instead'
Compilation succeeded - 2 warning(s)

Admittedly these are only warnings, and my tlstest.exe ran without any error messages, but it would be nice if someone had a few minutes to update the example at

The entire tool is obsolete and will eventually be removed.
