Re: SSL handshake failed: SSL error: A TLS warning alert has been received.

I also had this error "SSL handshake
failed: SSL error: A TLS warning alert has been received. "

In case it helps, here is how I found a solution:

-I did a trace: tcpdump port 443 -s0 -w error.cap
-which I opened with wireshark, and saw the server gave a TLS warning "TLSv1
Record Layer: Alert (Level: Warning, Description: Unrecognized Name)"
This one is even documented in wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transport_Layer_Security
"TLS only; client's Server Name Indicator specified a hostname not supported
by the server"

I understood there was a mismatch between the ServerName in apache's
ssl.conf and the IP I used on the svn command line
I updated the ServerName and the error went away
