GŁn, thanks for the explanation! Now I can see the article about "Server Name
Indication" in the RFC. Do we really need to turn off SSL_V2_COMPATIBLE_HELLO
to transmit the "ServerNameList"? I haven't had enough time to look to the
nss' code. But I wonder how this is done in Firefox which uses nss and works
just fine.

You can try it youself with the following URLs:

https://www.orange.sk/ (NSS error -12226)
