Changed the setting on IISADMIN to require 128bit encryption and now cannot get in.  IE says cipher strenth is 128.  Cannot figure it out.

Is there a way to change it back to not requiring 128 bit?  What could be the issue with IE accessing it?

Thanks

Actually I'm trying to get into the Administrative web site and getting the 128bit error.

Thanks,

I've looked everywhere in the MMC that I can think of to find the same setting to unckeck the 128 and cannot find it.  If I try to browse a page in the administrative web I get a message the I need a high encryption browser capable of 128.  I'm  using IE5.5 and it has 128.

Cannot figure it out.

Thanks,

Mike

You need a proper certificate with sufficient key bit length (1024 at least) for this to work, and the site must be bound on the SSL port (443).

I found it under IIS Snap-in under Secure Communications  on the Directory Security tab of the Adminstrative Web Site Properties.

Mine is greyed out, but it is not using the Admin web site. I would imagine that this is only administerable using the web site which you can no longer open.

Quite a dilimma. That's all the information I have right now. I'll keep looking.

It's grayed out because there is no certificate so secure the SSL connection with. As long as there is no certificate, SLL will not work at all - no matter if 128bit or less.

I will take a look at the certificate and the port and let you know.

Selected require SSL and then I could uncheck the box for require 128 then un selected require SSL.

Problem resolved quite easily.
