To be honest from a security point of view - you shouldn't be doing this.... if the client
can't talk to your server you need to look for a new client? Assuming from what you say this
is just a monitoring tool.

We have switched off TLS v1.0 and v1.1 as all the browsers which we consider secure support
these protocols.

We have also dropped support for many of the "insecure" Key ex algorithms and cipher strengths.

We may lose a few visitors - but at least our servers and requests are considered secure.

Hi Stefan,

thanks for your answer.
That's what i assume. Isn't it possible to adapt the cipher-suite that the client can talk
to the server ?
I tried "SSLCipherSuite SSLv3:+TLSv1", but client still complains.
