PROPFIND request failed on /repository; SSL negotiation failed; unknown protocol

I setup subversion server using apache on fedora. All
http-based local and remote accesses to the
repositories, using browser or tortoisesvn, are
working fine. But, when I have enabled SSL based
access to the repositories, I started getting error
messages. It is working fine if I test it locally
svn list https://www.myserver.com/repository
lynx https://www.myserver.com/repository).

But the problem is I am unable to access the
repositories remotely via https protocol (using a
browser or tortoisesvn). I get “the page cannot be
displayed” error message while accessing the
repository using the browser. On the other hand, I
get the following error message in tortoisesvn:
PROPFIND request failed on ‘/repository’; SSL
negotiation failed; unknown protocol (
I am using self-signed certificate. So far, I have
enabled sever authentication only and I shall enable
client authentication in future.

I saw some other people posted the same question on
the internet – but either there is no response or
responses to the question are not helpful. Parts from
my ssl.conf and httpd.conf setting are given below.
I am using subversion 1.3.0. Could you please give me
some hints about how to fix the problem? Thanks in
