Sorry I pasted in the wrong line.

What I meant to say is that currently I have this:

   ssl_ciphers  ALL:!ADH:!EXPORT56:RC4+RSA:+HIGH:+MEDIUM:+LOW:+SSLv2:+EXP;

So should I just replace that with this:

   ssl_ciphers DES-CBC-SHA:RC4-MD5:RC4-SHA:AES128-SHA:DES-CBC3-SHA;

Or should I append yours in the front of my existing one, to come up with this:


And I assume I should leave this prefer_server_ciphers as is:
  ssl_prefer_server_ciphers   on;

Lastly, can you think of anything else we have not covered that can help speed the ssl handshake process?

Thanks again.
