Many thanks for the info/tip..
here's my output:
SSL => Yes
SSL Version => OpenSSL/0.9.8b
SSL Support => enabled
OpenSSL support => enabled
OpenSSL Library Version => OpenSSL 0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 01 Jul 2008
OpenSSL Header Version => OpenSSL 0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 01 Jul 2008
Native OpenSSL support => enabled
and this from YUM:

I guess the issue might be the SSL version then? Any idea how I update this? No RHEL based repo updates/upgrades listed via YUM... Is there a repo I'm missing perhaps? Dependencies maybe an issue though ehh?
Found these links that seem relevant here
Seems to imply it would be better to jump up CentOS versions ( to 6.2 etc..)
Thanks again for the reply!! Much appreciated!
