comment Free (or nearly free) Trusted SSL Certificate?
I've been using StartCom for 3 years now and they rock. Can't go wrong with them and their certs being free for an year. Also, the owner of the company still runs most of it and detected recent attacks himself!

comment SSL Certificate with any webhost
I believe in stating the facts, since you never know what his target segment of users is. It might very well be all mobile users or desktop users using Firefox.

comment SSL Certificate with any webhost
Depends on the hosting company. If they support TLS Server Name Indication on their server, he can use the certificate without dedicated IP address. Most browsers work fine with that, except IEx running on WinXP.

Alternatively, get a network capture to see which phase of the handshake is failing.

Also, TLS does not break compatability with SSL, please verify your sources.

comment What is TLS and how does it compare to SSL?
I beg to differ. TLS does not generally refer to STARTTLS command in SMTP. Any documentation that you read will refer to TLS as the TLS protocol, which is used by SMTP to protect its traffic. Now when it comes to "Opportunistic TLS", then you can involve higher level protocols which have the "opportunity" to use TLS or not.

comment What is TLS and how does it compare to SSL?
All of those comments apply to SSL/TLS being used by other protocols. SSLv3 and TLSv1.0 are almost identical with differences only known to the protocol experts.

comment Using SSLv3 - Enabling Strong Ciphers Server 2008
What is the machine you are trying to authenticate to? If it is publicly reachable, I can take a peek at what it supports and see if there is anything I can spot.

comment Using SSLv3 - Enabling Strong Ciphers Server 2008
The error most likely doesn't come from MSXML.DLL, rather from the security subsystem on Windows. Look in the event log for logs from the "Schannel" component, which implements SSL/TLS on Windows. There might be some clues there. Did you actually resolve the issue?
