If you are using Xandros Linux Deluxe 3.01 and running
CrossOver Office 4.1-2 to run Internet Explorer 6.x you may
have noticed that you cannot connect to nor view any web page
on a SSL-secured web site. This is because IE, when running
under Xandros/CrossOver, has its cipher strength set to
0-bits (open IE’s Help menu, then click on “About Internet
Explorer” to display the cipher strength, among other
things). Why this is so, is not clear to me but a check of
the support forum at Xandros found the following
Navigate to your
directory (substitute your own login name for “USERNAME”
when navigating to the directory).
Make a backup copy of the
file found in that directory.
After making the copy, open the original
file with your text editor.
Find the following line and delete only that line:
Save your change and exit the text editor.
This worked for me and I now have 128-bit cipher strength
in Internet Explorer and I can now access secure sites.
