Clients marked 'R'

Hello all,

I'm working with the ssltest as part of a university project, so I need to dive a little bit deeper into the reasons for the ratings. Any help appreciated.

In particular I wonder about the Handshake Simulation. I got for example:

Chrome 37 / OS X  RTLS 1.2 TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 (0xc02f FS 128

 

R means I have to improve the result, right? From the user agent page, I gather

TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 (0xc02b)


is optimal. So far so good. I go to my webserver and have openssl check the configured cipher suites:

Here is my problem. OpenSSL says Chrome's favorite is actually on place 2, but place 4 is negotiated by the tool. Is my web server not fully utilising OpenSSL? Or does the SSLTest have a bug?

 

My test server is reachable on cs6231.asuscomm.com if you want to run the test again. Thanks for any suggestions in advance!
