Hi Folks,

This is a great little how-to. Unfortunately, there's an error in the SSLRandomSeed directive here; SSLRandomSeed can't be called from the <VirtualHost> section, and fails with a syntax error. On my Debian system, I have it listed in the /etc/apache2/conf.d/virtual.conf file, just with

SSLRandomSeed startup file:/dev/urandom 1024
SSLRandomSeed connect file:/dev/urandom 1024

Also, be sure to remove the forward slashes and join the entire line when adding the "SetEnvIf User-Agent" section; all three lines should be joined to look like:

SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown downgrade-1.0 force-response-1.0
