Hello. I encounted the issue that was described on Novell's bugtracker 2 years ago: http://www.mail-archive.com/mono-bugs@lists.ximian.com/msg74245.html

I can confirm that AuthentificateAsServer hangs, but not only with .NET clients, but with C++ ones such as SkypeKit.

I can also confirm that changing "return BeginRead" to "return BeginWrite" in BeginAuthenticateAsServer routine fixes the problem.

Now I have to include a patched version of SslStream.cs in my projects.

Please, include that fix in upstream.

I'm also encountering this issue. There is a fix available in the above mail, it'd be great if this could be merged.

As I can see, they've fixed this a year ago:
Please try to compile Mono from recent sources and see if the issue is still present.

I've finally managed to compile Mono from Git and it is indeed fixed. This bug should be able to be closed now.
