I have setup an Apache 2.2.17 on Windows Server 2003 and added a basic html page with configurations.  I am building this to eventually be a reverse proxy to force TLS only.  So the only cipher I have enabled is TLS.  I get my page to load in Chrome and Firefox, but in IE 6, 7 and 8, I get a 404 with no entry into the access.log on the apache server.  

Using wireshark I can see that the handshake is started by the client and server, but the server just stops responding followed by the client sending repeated Reset requests.  I am wondering if this is related to the SNI issues with earlier apache builds.  I am using OpenSSL 9.8o, so this should be included.  

My goal is to use this server to enable FIPS compliance for legacy servers.  If there is a FAQ which can redirect my solution, I will accept that also :)

I have uploaded an export of the wireshark log, unfortunately it won't let me upload a .pcap, so it is in txt.  I stopped recording before the usual 15 reset requests were seen, but you can see one at the end of the log.  I am 60.107, server is 140.179
