Subject [users@httpd] How does Mod_ssl decide what to use: of SSL or TLS?
Date Fri, 17 Apr 2009 16:03:00 GMT
Does anyone know the mechanism that mod_ssl uses to chose the  
connection protocol? Assuming the client will accept SSLv3 as well as  
any TLS, How does mod_ssl make this decision? Or, is it up to openssl?  
I've read the mod_ssl code and it's not obvious to me. Do the TCP  
window size have anything to do with it?
