We have the above version of FTP2 we are reducing the ciphers on our Secure server to address the logjam issue. When testing we fail. We have reduced to two ciphers, TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256 and TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA265

Here is the last of the log

            level: fatal
            descrip: handshake failure
            Passive socket closing complete.
        Failed to read incoming handshake messages. (1)
    Client handshake failed. (1)
    connectionClosed: 0
  Failed to convert channel to SSL/TLS
Failed to connect to FTP server.

Thanks, I was working on reducing ciphers for PCI compliance, thru hunt and peck I was able to find an allowable combination.

Care to share what combination worked for you? It might help others with a similar challenge...

Not sure about, but the current documentation mentions that as of the following about supported ciphers. Dees it help?

SslAllowedCiphers As String

Introduced in version

Provides a means for setting a list of ciphers that are allowed for SSL/TLS connections. The default (empty string) indicates that all implemented ciphers are possible: aes256-cbc, aes128-cbc, 3des-cbc, and rc4. To restrict SSL/TLS connections to one or more specific ciphers, set this property to a comma-separated list of ciphers such as "aes256-cbc, aes128-cbc". The order should be in terms of preference, with the preferred algorithms listed first. The server however, chooses from among the algorithms listed.

Starting in v9.5.0.48, Chilkat will by-default disallow all possible usage of RSA keys that are less than 1024 bits. To allow for 512 bits or above, add "rsa512" to the list of algorithms in the SslAllowedCiphers list. To allow only 2048 bits or above, add "rsa2048" to the list of algorithms. (Adding "rsa1024" chooses the same as the default.)
