Currently, I'm doing my darndest to implement SSL file transfers. Using Net::SSH, I get "`initialize': Unsupported cipher algorithm (aes-128-cbc). (RuntimeError)" At first I thought this was a problem with the Net::SSH module, but it turns out that my SSL module seems to support no ciphers:
RuntimeError: Unsupported cipher algorithm (des-ede-cbc).
from (irb):4:in `initialize'
from (irb):4:in `new'
I've tried this with multiple ciphers, to no avail.
Looking at the openssl/cipher.rb, it seems that a few classes are automatically made, but they don't work either:
RuntimeError: Unsupported cipher algorithm (DES).
from (eval):5:in `initialize'
from (irb):13:in `new'

I've searched high and low; the only remotely informative thing I found was in a thread in May of 2004. I used the example provided within ( c=OpenSSL::Cipher::Cipher.new("DES") ) and got the same problems.
Does anyone know what's going on here, and/or how to fix it?
