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.

  1. Many thanks, worked for me also on Fedora 23 (Linux workstation) using OpenJDK version 1.8.0_91.
    The config file location on this system was :
    /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.91-6.b14.fc23.x86_64/jre/lib/security/java.security

    which is installed by the RPM package:
    java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless-1.8.0.91-6.b14.fc23.x86_64
