Connection Failure Status code unavailable

I moved servers from and updated my SSL cert.  If I go to the URL I can post.  However one of my vendors uses Coldfusion 6.1 to post to me.  SHe gets Connection Failure: Status code unavailable when posting.  Manually she can post.

Any idea what could change on my server that would have caused that?

The script that coldfusion is posting to is a PHP script linked to a MySQL db on a linux/apache server  some of the versions of LAMP changed during the move but nothing that affects the script.  And anyway everybody else can post fine but these coldfusion people.  I did read that CF 4 and 5 had problems with 128bit SSL?  but this is 6.1 so shouldnt matter.  

I dont have access to thier server or scripts but any hints I can give them to get it working again would be great.

thanks

Try adding the IP address of your server to the vendor's HOSTNAMES file. It may be a DNS resolution problem.

So for anybody searching this later.  They had to get a third party software to fix the problem.  I guess CF doesnt like some of the smaller SSL issuers...
If I get the software they used Ill post back.

thanks
