Domino not switching to TLS 1.0

We need to do HTTPS on our Domino 8.5.2 servers.
Browsers no longer support SSL3.0
IBM indicates that Fix Pack 4 handles the "Poodle" issue: forcing TLS 1.0
We upgraded our server with lotus_domino852FP4.exe downloaded from IBM.
Problem:  it still doesn't work.  It looks like Domino HTTP is not forcing a switch to TLS 1.0.
All browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome) report errors.  For example:
IE:  This page can’t be displayed.  Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings and try connecting to https://192.168.10.96  again. If this error persists, contact your site administrator. --> TLS 1.0 is on.

So it looks like the "fix" didn't take.  Or is there another configuration I missed.

I suppose you followed the guidelines on this page: http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/dominowiki.nsf/dx/IBM_Domino_TLS_1.0 and you downloaded 8.5.2 Fix Pack 4 Interim Fix 3. Correct?

Firefox is TLS enabled, so it seems, but you could maybe get more info using Force-TLS, see https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/force-tls/

Right on.  I loaded FP4... turns out I needed FP4 plus the FP4 Interim Fix3.  How in the world would anyone know that the FP4 downloaded from IBM did not contain, ah, fixes?!  Perhaps calling it FP5 would have confused the outside world a touch less!
In any case, thanks.

"Oh no, oh nonononono.... Can't do that, sir, there's one FP every 4 months, so if there are big bugs we can't call it an FP. Oh no. That's an Interim Fix, see, and at the end of our 4 months we'll include the IF in the FP. Otherwise we'd have FPs all over the place. Would be bad, wouldn't it?"

Thanks! ;-)

Nice insight.  Though, one would have expected an FP5 at the next scheduled FP release, perhaps identical to the FP4 Fix 3.  Logic in blue, I gather!
