Switch from sslv3 to tls for outbound transactions

Hi

We are using webMethods 7.1.3 version at patch IS_7.1.3_Core_Fix12 on OS Windows Server 2008 R2 in production environment.
One of our partners has disabled SSLV3 because of the poodle bug. So they have asked us to switch from SSLV3 to TLS for sending outbound messages. Presently we are using HTTPS for sending outbound messages to that partner.

Error description:
iaik.security.ssl.SSLException: Peer sent alert: Alert Fatal: handshake failure

We have already tried the following:

  1. watt.security.ssl.client.ignoreEmptyAuthoritiesList=true is already set.

  2. watt.net.ssl.client.handshake.maxVersion=tls
    watt.net.ssl.client.handshake.minVersion=sslv2

watt.net.ssl.client.handshake.maxVersion=tls
watt.net.ssl.client.handshake.minVersion=tls
Both these settings have already been tried and they are giving the same error.

  1. enttoollkit.jar file is already present in the servers.

  2. watt.ssl.iaik.clientAllowUnboundRenegotiate=false
    watt.ssl.iaik.serverAllowUnboundRenegotiate=false
    These settings are still false

Following are the ssl debug logs for different levels of handshake version:

The customer has already confirmed that there are no changes in certificates or IP/URLs.

Any information regarding this will be highly appreciated.
