Re: determining the ssl cipher a client is trying to use

Somewhere above

TLS: error:1408A0C1:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:no shared cipher

(I assume that's the error you're getting) there are packet dumps--look
for the hex. Are those useful (albeit unwieldy)?

Anyway, I'd go at this from a different layer.
http://www.rtfm.com/ssldump/ comes to mind.
