Subject SSL/TLS, Tomcat 6.0.29 and Chrome: The connection had to be retried using SSL 3.0.
Date Fri, 15 Oct 2010 16:58:53 GMT
  When users connect to our Tomcat 6.0.29 using Google Chrome, they get 
this warning when they click the security icon:

"The connection had to be retried using SSL 3.0.  This typically means 
that the server is using very old software and may have other security 

Tomcat is configured using this:

<Connector port="xxx" address="xxxx" protocol="HTTP/1.1" SSLEnabled="true"
                maxThreads="100" scheme="https" secure="true" 
enableLooks="false" compression="on"
                keystoreFile="xxxx/certificate.keystore" keystorePass="xxxx"
                clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" />

I believe we are using  OpenSSL 0.9.8f on Solaris 10.  Not sure how to 
tell which SSL library tomcat is using.

How do I fix this?  We have to support multiple browser/versions: IE6, 
IE7, IE8, FF, Chrome...  so whatever solution should allow for this.
