After trying a whole bunch of things I gave this a shot and it worked!!!  Thanks for the post.

In my experience, this all has to do with the java version. I uninstalled Java 8_171 and installed 7_79 and now my iDrac console works perfectly. This is not ideal because the older versions of Java are not secure. Not really sure what else we can do it about it when the iDrac6 doesn't work with newer versions. 

I have a separate VM that I run the older Java version in. I shut it down when not in use.

Commenting the line out fixed it for me.

Re-enabling SSLv3 in the Java security config got this working for me as well, after I had tried "everything" including the latest iDRAC6 firmware and packet captures.

The iDRAC6 remote console feature requiring SSLv3 is an epic fail on Dell's part. Come on, people, it's 2018.

Hi,

I've found that RC4 is the issue here not SSLv3, commenting out the whole line enables all the algorithms, hence why it has worked for some.

I found simply removing RC4 from the list was adequate, this is on an R610 with iDRAC 2.91 and Java 8 Update 181.

@James Harpercan confirm, just removing RC4 from the options works here as well, R710 with the same setup as everyone else. Thanks to everyone here, I've been fighting this forever and just couldn't figure out what was wrong.
