I have a PowerEdge 1950 BIOS 2.7.0 with DRAC 5 Firmware Version 1.65 (12.08.16).
When trying to connect to "Console" I am receiving the error "Error when reading from SSL socket connection".
I did comment the line "# jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3, RC4, MD5withRSA, DH keySize < 768" at java.security file but still the same.
I am using WIndows 10 with latest FireFox.
Thanks in advanced,
Solved! Go to Solution.
The first thing I would check on is that the browser itself is actually 32bit. This is because Console Redirection and Virtual Media only supports 32bit Web browsers. Using a 64bit Web browsers may generate unexpected results like this. Also, I would suggest updating the BIOS and BMC on the server to current.
After that then try the console again.
Let me know what you see.

I found these edits were required in order to connect to a DRAC 5 card using Chrome and Java 8, rev. 91:
In Control Panel > Java > Security:
1. Check "Enable java content in the browser"
2. Set security level to "High"
3. Add each DRAC IP to exception list
In C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_91\lib\security\java.security:
jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, RSA keySize < 1024
Remove SSLv3, RC4, and MD5withRSA:
jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=DH keySize < 768
