I am trying to use curl built with NSS (not built with OpenSSL) on Fedora 14 to connect to a webpage over https. The server to which I am connecting (example.com) uses the RC4-SHA cipher for its SSL. Whenever I try to connect to example.com, I get the NSS error SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP. I can connect via curl on this computer to example-2.com which has the DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA cipher. I can connect to example.com from a different computer that has curl built with OpenSSL.

How do I find out which ciphers are enabled on NSS and how do I enable the RC4-SHA cipher on NSS?

Try curl --url https://example.com/ --cipher rsa_rc4_128_sha –  user79162 Apr 21 '11 at 20:42
