Hi Simon,

Thanks for the info.

I am developing gnutls client.

I have used gnutls_record_disable_padding function to disbale padding and 
log I have sent to you.  later I have used 
gnutls_priority_set_direct(session, "NORMAL:%COMPAT", NULL); function but 
got the same result.

I will debug client side (UE) by using some diagnostic tool and come back 
to you with useful information.

I don't see any --priority NORMAL:%COMPAT parameter here?  Are you

This means the client refused to handshake with the gnutls-serv

What kind of error message do you get on the client side?  I think you
need to debug the client side to understand what the problem is.  Enable
debug logging on that side too.
