Subject [users@httpd] Getting 'no shared ciphers' while connecting to the server
Date Tue, 31 May 2005 06:03:46 GMT
Hi All,
I'm using Apache 1.3.31 with mod_ssl 2.8.17 and OpenSSL 0.9.7d binaries. I
use RSA based self signed certificates for SSL communication.
My httpd.conf has the following SSLCipherSuite configured
SSLSessionCacheTimeout 600
SSLOptions +StdEnvVars +ExportCertData
But, in a freshly installed server, the server doesn't accept any requests
and I get the following errors repeatedly in the Apache error log
mod_ssl: SSL handshake failed (server, client (OpenSSL library error follows)
[Mon May 23 13:37:43 2005] [error] OpenSSL: error:1408A0C1:SSL
routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:no shared cipher 
[Hint: Too restrictive SSLCipherSuite or using DSA server certificate?]
I browsed the modssl FAQ and got, that sometimes regenerating certificates
helps. I regenerated the server certificates, but I'm still facing the same
Has anybody experienced such an error ? Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
