Browser not asking for client certificate

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I am configuring Apache to use client certificate authentication. When I brows to the site however, it does not ask me for a certificate, unless SSLCACertificateFile is specified. It will then ask for a certificate through the browser. The browser will pop up a box asking me to choose a certificate (it only shows certificates signed by the CA specified by SSLCACertificateFile). I am using a self signed certificate. It also does not matter if the certs the 'client' uses is specified in SSLCACertificatePath. Any helpful advice on why it is acting this way? Is the browser not asking for cert (HowTos)
