Dell iDRAC Network connection has dropped


After the latest Java updates you may have seen this message “Network connection has dropped” whenever trying to use viewer.jnlp

Go to your Java release lib folder, and comment/change the following lines on your file

jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3, RC4, MD5withRSA, DH keySize < 1024, \
 EC keySize < 224, DES40_CBC, RC4_40

This issue is caused by Java disabling 3DES_EDE_CBC – after making the changes, relaunch your browser and you should be able to remote in again.
