On a Windows 2000 server web server i need to be able to perform the following actions.

The SSL configuration should be changed so that connections using weak (that is, less than 128-bit) encryption ciphers are rejected.

And

The SSL configuration on the listed hosts should be changed so that SSL connections using the insecure version 2 protocol are not accepted.

On directory security tab, click 'edit' in 'secure connections', check 'require ssl' and 'require 128 bit'
