NNTP connection fails


From: Edward M. Reingold
Subject: NNTP connection fails
Date: 19 Aug 2009 11:01:37 -0500
User-agent: Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.4

The following fails

 (setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
      '((nntp "news.cs.illinois.edu"
              (nntp-open-connection-function nntp-open-ssl-stream)
              (nntp-port-number 563)
              (nntp-address "news.cs.illinois.edu")
              (nntp-authinfo-user "reingold")
              (nntp-authinfo-password "MyPassword"))))

with an error message

  gnus-select-newsgroup: Couldn't open server

How can I debug the problem?  I know the login/password are correct because
they work when I read the news from Thunderbird.
