Hi,

I was using secureblackbox to connect to the host for years.. Recently the host
end requires connection encryption to be SHA-2 and TLS 1.2. I have tried using
existing secureblackbox and can not make the connection to the host successfully.

I am Window vb developer, How can I find out what encryption protocol version I have currently and how to update if necessary.

I've use...
ElSBLicenseManagerX1.SetLicenseKey ("5FCAE3C89CF2Etc,.. on form load
and use client.address, client.port,client.open to attempt making connection
I am able to connect some port with SHA-1 but getting failed respond on SHA-2, Host end replied that particular port is for SHA-2 and TLS1.2 requires only.


Thanks

Bob Csc

Hi Bobby,

Thank you for contacting us.

I am sorry to say that ActiveX edition you are using is too old and can't be used to connect to TLS 1.2 and SHA2 servers. This is because both TLS 1.2 and SHA2 were added to the protocol relatively recently and went through a lot of changes on their way. This way, I am afraid that upgrading to a newer SecureBlackbox version and edition is the only viable option for you.

Unfortunately, we do not support VB platform via ActiveX edition any more. This means that you might need to upgrade to a different edition of SecureBlackbox and using that one instead of ActiveX edition you are using currently. As you use VB, I believe .NET edition would suit you the best. COM and .NET are well interoperable, and you can easily use .NET components from COM components, which, in turn, can be used in VB.

May I ask you to let us know the details of SecureBlackbox version you are currently using, and attach your license ticket to your eldos.com account please? This will let us see your license and discuss any possible upgrade routes, if you are interested in it.

Ken

Actually, you are using a very old version of ActiveX edition, and it has been discontinued completely 3 years ago. This means that there's no option to upgrade to newer version. We recommend everyone to migrate to .NET, VCL, C++ or Java edition depending on their development platform. We have no solutions for 20-year-old platforms like Visual Basic.

BTW /n software offers IPWorks SSH as ActiveX controls. Maybe that will work for you.


Sincerely yours
