Dell 2162ds KVM Network Connect Error

I have a Dell 2162ds KVM switch in my server room for out-of-band management instead of individual DRAC cards.

I recently went to use this, but the Java connection produced an error of “Network Connect Error”.

Luckily someone already found a workaround for this issue here.

Here’s how to get it to work:

  1. Run Notepad as Administrator
  2. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_65\lib\security
  3. Open the file “Java.Security”
  4. Find the line that looks like this: jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3, RC4, DH keySize < 768
  5. Remove this text from that line: “, DH keySize < 768”
  6. Save the text file

Now your KVM session should start properly.
