Hello @oitotech, welcome to the Let's Encrypt community. :slightly_smiling_face:

@Bruce5051 This is an error when the client tries to connect to the ACME server to begin with.

However, an "unknown error" is not very helpful and also not one I've seen before. I would advice @oitotech to use tools like openssl s_client and/or curl to debug outgoing connections in general.


And what is the real Internet IP?
IP is within RFC 1918 block
