Someone please tell me - When is 3DES not 3DES?

Here's something that's starting to bug me.


Qualys SSL browser test tells me my Winxp Pro (32bit) with IE8 does not support FS in 3DES - so far so good but the Qualys SSL test also reports my version of 3DES is not 168 bit (the expected variant) but 112 bit.


This is strange as elsewhere on the web my current combo is correctly reported as 3DES of the 168 bit variety with absolutely no mention of the 112 bit version Qualys SSL test reports.


Ideas from the forum - rational or other - would help.
