The plugin tries to make a connection to https://tlstest.paypal.com/ but it seems that there are no longer any DNS records for it therefore the plugin reports:
cURL error 6: Could not resolve host: tlstest.paypal.com
and concludes that TLS 1.2 is not enabled.
Selecting the howsmyssl endpoint in the plugin does not improve the reporting and again it says TLS 1.2 is not enabled.
However, I ran a quick script on my server to connect with curl to the howsmyssl endpoint and it is successfully connecting with TLS 1.2.
(see: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/27904854/verify-if-curl-is-using-tls/50766765 )
<?php $ch = curl_init('https://www.howsmyssl.com/a/check'); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); $data = curl_exec($ch); curl_close($ch); $json = json_decode($data); echo $json->tls_version; ?>
Conclusion: in my system the plugin is running but not reporting correctly.
