I just configured my HE IPv6 tunnel on my home Cisco 877.
Everything is working ok, but I can't get dynamic updates to work, and here's what happens:

May  1 21:40:18.326: HTTPDNSUPD: Call returned Request Aborted, update of my.host.name <=> xx.xx.xx.xx failed

Have you ever experienced such issue? How did you resolve?
I've been googling for hours trying to find a way to disable weak SSL ciphers on IOS, but I haven't been able to find anything.
I also tried to push the HE certificate as described here http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/IPv6_with_Tunnel_Broker_Configuration_Example, but it didn't help.



Sadly, the only option is a newer IOS.  I have the same problem with 15.1(4)M1. M10 turns off SSLv3.
