This patch looks very nice, Shinnok. Please change the name "ssldone" to
something more descriptive; it doesn't mean "SSL done," it means "SSL
accept done."
Renamed to ssl_accept_done. Commited.

I don't think the patch works when the server runs --sh-exec. For
   ncat --ssl --sh-exec "date" -lk
Connecting with a non-SSL client prevents SSL clients from receiving any
data. I added a new test for this case. Would you look into it?
Indeed it doesn't work with --exec modes, since they take a different
path in code. Fixed for that path too in r23946.

Argh, and there's ncat_exec_win.c that I have to handle too, if I'm not
mistaken, since I only too cake of the netexec() in ncat_posix.c? Any
special comments for that David? I see there's some playing around with
blocking/unblocking of the remote socket(@420) which might interfere
with making this work.

Yes, it should work for Windows too. You probably don't have to worry
about that blocking detail.

Please find a way to factor this code into its own function. It's too
much to have it repeated in each read loop.

            if(o.ssl && info->ssl && !info->ssl_accept_done){
                int ret = SSL_accept(info->ssl);
                int sslerr = 0;
                if(ret == 1){
                    info->ssl_accept_done = 1;
                sslerr = SSL_get_error(info->ssl, ret);
                if(ret == -1 && (sslerr == SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ
                                 || sslerr == SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE)){
                }else {
                    if (o.verbose) {
                        loguser("Failed SSL connection from %s: %s\n",
                                     ERR_error_string(ERR_get_error(), NULL));
                    goto loop_end;
