handshake_failure SSL error
#1
One torrent site I use has switched SSL certificate and now vuze fails to connect to it. The site works in Firefox and Internet Explorer.



Code:
[22:33:56] [tracker] Error from scrape interface https://www.norbits.net/scrape.php?passkey=xxxxxxxxx : Received fatal alert: handshake_failure (class javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException)

The problem is caused by the fact that the site uses AES 256 bit crypto - Java doesn't support this key strength by default due to cryptography export restrictions.

You need to install the 'unlimited jurisdiction policy files' into your Java runtime

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/j...index.html

search for 'jurisdiction. on that page

Hopefully as such certificates become more common this will be fixed in the core distributions

Hi,

I had the same error  (handshake_failure) so I did the steps you recommended, and now I get a different error: "IO Exception: Connection refused: connect" after it waits for a while. I tried using the respective unlimited strength files for java 1.7 and 1.8 (and switching which version Vuze was using) but it did not help.

Current Config:
Java 1.8.0_25
 Oracle Corporation
SWT v4233, win32
Windows 7 v6.1, x86
V5.4.0.0/4 az2

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
