Is there a way to specify curl to use a specific TLS version? Like 1.1 or 1.2? I can see only sslv3 and tlsv1 options in command help. I took latest src and compiled it with openssl 1.0.1e. Still dont see a direct option in help. Is there any other way to set it?

I don't see any options for setting minor TLS version either. Also see this thread: "That's because, when libcurl is configured to use TLSv1, it will automatically use the highest version number supported by your TLS library, and downgrade to TLS 1.0 if the server doesn't support 1.1 or 1.2. There's no separate option here because, until a serious problem is found in 1.0, there doesn't need to be a separate option." –  Karan Jun 12 '13 at 18:07
