SSL Security Check - Socket Error #10054




We are seeing a problem on a few of our servers with the SSL Security Check Sensor. If we have SSL 2.0 or 3.0 enabled, it seems to read correctly and warn us of the risk. If we disable SSL 2.0 and 3.0 and only leave TLS on, we get a "Socket Error # 10054 Connection reset by peer."

Any help is appreciated.
