Subject RE: [users@httpd] Redirection based on HTTP Host header
Date Thu, 19 Aug 2010 21:02:12 GMT

Thanks for responding, and apologies if I wasn't very clear.
I have a server that is both RSA and ECC capable.  I want the
server to accept HTTPS connections from both RSA and ECC clients
on the same TCP port.  Presumably, the default port on the server 
will support only one of the algorithms (say, RSA), and thus need 
to detect the capabilities of the client so it can redirect to a different
port if an ECC client connects.
 
Any ideas as to how this would be best accomplished?  Or is this
not how it works?
 
Frank
