MetadataProvider SSL errors

Hi Scott,

I finally got around to trying the cipherSuites option again as you suggested below, and I can't seem to get it to work.  Here are the two I've tried in the ApplicationDefaults tag with no success.  The only thing that I’ve gotten to work is the “tricky” approach using the TransportOption tag.  I’m certainly not an openSSL expert, so I’m probably missing something obvious..?

    <ApplicationDefaults entityID="ourownweb-test"

                         REMOTE_USER="eppn persistent-id targeted-id"



     ---  and this one..  ---

    <ApplicationDefaults entityID="ourownweb-test"

                         REMOTE_USER="eppn persistent-id targeted-id"



If you have a few minutes, could you provide an example so I can see what I might be doing wrong?

    Note that you can set cipherSuites directly in the configuration now without using tricks like that.
