force the server to use 256-bit AES Encryption when the client\server hello handshake is performed.

You can control the set of ciphers that the server is willing to use using the SSLCipherSuite

Note that the documentation for that directive is a little out of date when it comes to describing
the cipher suites that are available--- the specification is simply passed to OpenSSL, so
for more accurate documentation, check which version of OpenSSL your server is compiled with.
The "openssl ciphers" command is useful for checking exactly what cipher suites a given string
will enable when using a given version of OpenSSL.
