I can't seem to decrypt an exchange.  Google doesn't seem to give me
much either.  I hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
My client app is contacting the server WWW.XXX.YYY.ZZZ via https.

Are you sure the private key is the right one for the certificate
offered by site WWW.XXX.YYY.ZZZ?
        
It is the same key I am using to establish the SSL connection to the
server.  By a google search, I saw someone else say that transposing the
IP in the SSL preference helped.  I have tried both and can't get it to
decode.
      
Ah... there is your problem. You need the *server* key, not the *client*
key, as it is not used for generating the session keys.
    
So there is no way to decode an SSL session from the client side?
  
Fiddler?  http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/
