Cannot log into the game, getting error 520, SSL handshake rejected

Post by weecc »

Mac user here. I've searched for this topic without much success. I cannot log into the game server from within the game, I keep getting a "Failed to reach auth server. Code: 520. Error: Server aborted the SSL handshake." Looking through the logs, I get:

23.556 Info HttpSharedState.cpp:54: Downloading https://auth.factorio.com/api-login?api_version=4
23.801 Error HttpSharedState.cpp:136: CURL failed: code:35, 23; Server aborted the SSL handshake
23.801 Info HttpSharedState.cpp:145: Downloading https://auth.factorio.com/api-login?api_version=4
23.801 Info HttpSharedState.cpp:146: Status code: 0
23.802 Info AuthServerConnector.cpp:18: Failed to reach auth server: code(520) message(Server aborted the SSL handshake)

I've tried:

1) Restarting
2) Reinstalled the game / deleted factory folder from Library\Application Support
3) Tried different networks

Please and thank you!
