The default SSL configuration has problems negotiating the TLS bits on some sites. Setting TLSv1 as the only protocol choice, got alot more (at least the set I cared about) to work.
After a bit more investigation, I think the specific sets of MS IIS servers I'm hitting have cipher/protocol specs that are incompatible with the otherside. Anyways, no SSLv3 solves my problem, which for now is scraping some websites.
Change Default SSL Configuration
Maybe a new test case would be in order?
