we are handling SSL with a pound 2.3 HTTP(S) proxy. Is there any way to force a client's Browser to use SSLv3? I couldn't find anything in the pound documentation ...

Thanks for your insight!

I hope you've found an answer by now. But this was approved by a quality third party ethical hacking firm, Qualys WAS and network scanner, and IBM's AppScanner:


This removes the sslv2 but leaving sslv3 in place. It is however best practice to disable sslv3 where possible.
