We'll need some more information to provide any useful tips.

When you say silently failing, what actually happens? Which IRC client
are you using to test and how does it behave when the failure happens??

What happens when you try: openssl s_client -connect server:port

What happens when you use, eg, irssi and /connect -ssl server:port
- irssi usually gives good diagnostic information.
