IIS choses the common protocol - if both the client and server have ssl 3 available, you could try disabling the others:

Thanks. But the documentation is a little difficult to understand (and seems contradicting to itself). THe solution seems to disable SSL 2.0. DO I just go to:

HKey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders \SCHANNEL\Protocols\SSL 2.0\Server

Do I just add a DWORD named 00000000 and reboot? Is that right?
