snow's webbed site

this site attempts to be compatible with as much legacy tech as possible.

if your device can connect to the internet and has some kind of browser,
it SHOULD be able to open sn0w.cx and click around on it.
the minimum requirement for plain connections is just HTTP/0.9,
which means anything made in ~1995 or later should "just work".

you can also play with legacy SSL stacks here.
this site runs a custom fork of OpenSSL ("sillyssl"),
which restores support for old insecure ciphers including 40-bit export-grade.
everything from SSLv2 with null ciphers to modern TLSv1.2 will work.
[HTTP/3 and TLSv1.3 are work-in-progress].
SNI is not required.

NOTE: the SSL cert on port 443 may be too new for vintage devices.
if you're getting errors, try port 444 instead which is a selfsigned legacy-friendly cert.


known to work

this list is incomplete. you can help by expanding it!
tell me what funky tech you used to visit my site :3

legend:
: SSL can work without the special legacy port, but ZeroSSL is an untrusted CA
1: SSLv2/3 borked (debugging in progress, use plain HTTP)
2: SSLv2 borked (debugging in progress, restrict to SSLv3 in settings)
3: SSL initially works but then reports error mid-pageload
