SSL Proxy list: cipher suite

Unanswered Question

In my proxy list I choose to use a cipher suite rsa-with-3des-ede-cbc-sha.

What if the client doesn't support this? Does it fallback to another? Is there a difference in performance rsa-with-3des-ede-cbc-sha VS rsa-with-rc4-128-sha? 168 bit encryption vs 128 bit encryption.

For the moment i'm using rsa-with-3des but when i browse to the site i get 128 bit SSL Secured.

Any help on this subject would be nice.

Kind regards,

Frederik De Muyter.

Kind regards.

You can configure multiple cipher and give them a weight so that if 3des is not available on the client another one will be used.

If you do not configure another one however, then the connection should be dropped.
