Multiple SSL Virtual Hosts with Apache/mod_ssl/SNI


I've a need to deploy several SSL capable name based virtual hosts on one IP address. I know of the limitations of SSL/virtual hosting in this respect, and have seen some how-to's on using mod_gnutls to accomplish this.

Since mod_gnutls seems perpetually in development, and I would need this in a production environment, I'm interested in (supposedly) Apache 2.2.8's support for SNI in mod_ssl. Can anyone confirm whether this function is actually supported yet, and if so what client browsers as of this date support SNI?

I've found some info from this past April implying that only IE7 on Vista supports SNI, and I'd need to be sure XP is supported as well.

Thanks in advance...

I know there may not be a lot of attention on SNI, or people who even know what Server Name Indication is, but I'd appreciate any input from people who may know more about the status of this feature than I do.

Thanks!

Bump.

Is there nobody out there on LQ who knows if 2.2.8 or 2.2.9 supports SNI, or what planned version will support it? I've heard 2.2.8 and 2.2.9 support it, but the configure help shows no option for enabling SNI.
