Subject Re: [ApacheDS] SSL Problems with Thunderbird
Date Wed, 15 Sep 2010 10:15:25 GMT
  I finally found the answer by looking at what was going on at 
wireshark level and comparing with working connections. Thunderbird 3 by 
default uses TLS1.0 with SSL3.  I don't think ApacheDS copes too well 
with this combination. (Other clients are using SSLv2 not SSLv3).  I 
found out how to disable the use of TLS in Thunderbird and all came 
good. The setting is in the config prefs: security.enable_tls

This seems like a bug in ApacheDS, but I could not see any Jira issue 
for it.
