1. Open /var/opt/silvertail/etc/nginx-scoutproxy.conf and /var/opt/silvertail/etc/nginx-siteproxy.conf
2. Search for the following text in the file:
      # Restrict ssl_protocols
      ssl_protocols SSLv3 TLSv1;
3. Remove the SSLv3 from the ssl_protocols line. There could be multiple occurrences of the ssl_protocols line, make the below change to each occurrence. It should now look like this:
      ssl_protocols TLSv1;
4. Save the files and restart each nginx instance. Not all hosts will be running SiteProxy. All hosts will be running ScoutProxy.
      sudo /etc/init.d/st-ScoutProxy-<hostname> restart
