Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCLIENT-1146) HostNameVerifier started resolving hostnames in version 4.1

HostNameVerifier started resolving hostnames in version 4.1

                 Key: HTTPCLIENT-1146
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCLIENT-1146
             Project: HttpComponents HttpClient
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: HttpClient
            Reporter: Rosen Anastasov

In HttpClient 4.0 the HostNameVerifir verify the host name as specified in the HttpPost(URI).
I.e. or localhost.

HttpClient 4.1 is resolving this as it uses not directly the string host name to pass it to
the verifier, but remoteAddress.getHostName(). 

I.e. the code in 4.0 is hostnameVerifier.verify(host, sslsock);
and in 4.1 is this.hostnameVerifier.verify(remoteAddress.getHostName(), sslsock);

This leads to some differences and regression - clients upgraded with HttpClient 4.1 may stop
function if they have server certificate with IP address and in the same time this IP address
can be resolved to hostname by the OS.
