Re: Help after scanning with Nessus

On 5.6.7 you can uncheck all but TLSv1.2 (where jim.bus says)
and try the cipher suite being simply

HIGH:!TLSv1:!SSLv3;

See how your scan goes then
(I'm using an ALPHA version with TLSv1.3 - I'd love a report on my server. I test with as many tools as I can find for free)
