I have tried changing cipher ‎preferences with CURLOPT_SSL_CIPHER_LIST option but it seems it's not working. 

Following is the code I have used in my application :

curl_easy_setopt(handle->easyhandle, CURLOPT_SSL_CIPHER_LIST, "AES128-SHA:+RC4-SHA:+DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:-RC4-MD5:-EXP-RC4-MD5");

Here I wanted to remove TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5 (0x0004) cipher but even after using above mentioned call still RC4-MD5‎ is being sent from client in client hello message. 
I have even tried with using ! before cipher string still same issue. 

Is there something I am missing here??
