Sorry about that, I hit send instead of save. I was just going to add
that I feel that I have missed or mis-understood something, and so the
ECDHE ciphers are not seen. I have spent a while googling but have
found very little about this particular error. Most suggestions seem to
suggest that installing the JCE unlimited policy files, followed by an
app restart or server reboot, should be enough.

Anyone any ideas/suggestions about this?
