I'm using a 128-bit-cert. But browsers that support less encryption
(e.g. IE that comes with WinNT4) can't access my SSL-pages because
the encryption doesn't allow degration. Is there any way to solve
this prob? Using Apache with an official SSL-cert.
PS: This just came to my mind when you said "step-up" - cause in my
case it would be a "step-down", right?
