Open Java console from old dell 2950 idrac module on windows

For some reason JAVA is so insecure it breaks compatibility almost every update i was able to open the kvm console of my idrac module from my good old dell PE2950 by doing the following:

  1. Click start and open”configure java”
  2. Click on the security tab and add  your idracs url to the Exception site list (make sure you include https:// and a / at the end)
  3. Open the follwing file in your favorite notepad tool (I recommend notepad++) C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.x.x_x\lib\security\
  4. Search for SSLv3
  5. you will find a line that looks something like this: jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3, DH keySize < 768
  6. Comment out this line by putting  # at the beginning
  7. Save the file (if you receive an error stating file could not be saved try running notepad as administrator)
  8. open the jnlp file from your idrac interface…


please note: it is probably best if you uncomment the line after your done  to prevent security breaches
