Getting 'no shared ciphers' while connecting to the server

Alaka Pathy
Hi All,
 
I'm using Apache 1.3.31 with mod_ssl 2.8.17 and
OpenSSL 0.9.7d binaries. I use RSA based self signed
certificates for SSL communication.
My httpd.conf has the following SSLCipherSuite
configured
 
SSLSessionCacheTimeout 600
SSLOptions +StdEnvVars +ExportCertData
SSLCipherSuite
ALL:!ADH:!EXPORT56:!EXPORT40:RC4+RSA:+HIGH:+MEDIUM:+LOW:+SSLv2:+EXP:+eNULL
 
But, in a freshly installed server, the server doesn't
accept any requests and I get the following errors
repeatedly in the Apache error log
 
mod_ssl: SSL handshake failed (server
198.149.32.40:443, client 198.149.32.32) (OpenSSL
library error follows)
[Mon May 23 13:37:43 2005] [error] OpenSSL:
error:1408A0C1:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:no
shared cipher [Hint: Too restrictive SSLCipherSuite or
using DSA server certificate?]
 
I browsed the modssl FAQ and got, that sometimes
regenerating certificates helps. I regenerated the
server certificates, but I'm still facing the same
issue.
 
Has anybody experienced such an error ? Any help is
appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance,
-Alaka
