If you care about compatibility with applications that use Schannel for TLS on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, be aware of which ciphers it supports/doesn't support:


Note that there are no ciphers that use AES for encryption in that list.

tl;dr: Make sure TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA ("RC4-SHA" in OpenSSL) is in your server's cipher list if you care about Windows XP and removed the 3DES ciphers because they're "too slow."

Of course not, as XP dates back to 2001. And this includes IE on XP, BTW.
