Subject [users@httpd] Re-negotiation handshake failed
Date Tue, 13 Apr 2010 23:31:29 GMT

I'm having a problem on setting up client certificate on my test site on 
Apache 2.2.15/OpenSSL 0.9.8m on Windows XP.  I followed the "How-To" 
articles on mod_ssl ( 
 When I browse the site, I got the following error message in the log:

Re-negotiation handshake failed: Not accepted by client!?

I read through the documentation.  I tried to turn 
SSLInsecureRenegotiation on and off, but no luck.  I attached the 
configuration of my virtual host, hoping that you would point out anything 
that I've missed.  Oh, when I said that the site wasn't working, I was 
referring to my browser, which displays an error page with the code: 
ssl_error_handshake_failure_alert, instead of asking me for a certificate.
