FTPS SSL handshake - iaik.security.ssl.SSLException

Hi,

I have a idoc -> file scenario using FTPS. I uploaded the CA certificates into the visual administrator, but still get the following error when I try to send a file and establish the connection:

iaik.security.ssl.SSLException: Peer sent alert: Alert Fatal: illegal parameter

My scenario worked in testing, but not in production(classic). The logs on the receiving FTP server says:

SSL routines:SSL3_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:no ciphers passed

It seem like the certificates are not recognized even though it's uploaded in the visual admin.

Any suggestions are appriciated!

Thanks Rasmus

    Not sure pb is at certificate level, maybe more at SSL protocol level ! This error seems to be raised during handshake (when negociating which cipher suite will be used - DES, RC2, etc - for exchange) ... Maybe your server (receiver) does not support any of the cipher suites announced by your client (SSLv3 vs SSLv2, etc) or the other way around

    Have you tried sniffing traffic b/w your 2 systems (ssldump ? ethereal ?) ?

    Thank you for your input, the problem was that basis hadn't installed the correct cryptopgraphic library. //Rasmus
