Glad it worked out!

The documentation reads:

    Set SSL version to use (optional).
    It is best to leave this unset, in which case the correct version will be
    automatically detected. In rare cases, it may be necessary to specify a
    particular version from: tls1, tls1_1, tls1_2, ssl3, ssl23.
I find the above to be quite easy to understand. Could you please
elaborate on what confuses you so that we can improve the wording?
