[openssl-users] What does this error mean?

The server is rejecting the connection because it doesn't like the SSL/TLS version range that wget is offering. Anything prior to TLSv1.1 suffers from vulnerabilities that can be exploited under practical conditions, so many servers reject older protocol versions.

You don't have to upgrade the OS to put a newer version of OpenSSL on, though you may have to build OpenSSL yourself.

It may not be relevant, but I'm running SLES 10 SP3 which is a very
old version of the OS and I can't upgrade it due to some installed
products. When I try to do a wget I'm seeing the error:

OpenSSL: error:1407742E:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:tlsv1
alert protocol version

What does the error mean and how do I fix it?
