I am trying to connect to a queue manager on AIX from a windows desktop, using an SSL channel with CipherSpec.
The error I am getting is the following message on the queue manager side:
AMQ9639: Remote channel 'SSL.SVRCONN' did not specify a CipherSpec.
I have taken what I believe to be the steps needed to set this up, but I guess I have missed something. I created a SVRCONN channel called SSL.SVRCONN, and specified an SSL Cipher Spec of DES_SHA_EXPORT. I created a CLNTCONN channel of the same name specifying DES_SHA_EXPORT in it also, and copied the file AMQCLCHL.TAB from the AIX system to the windows system. I created certificates on both sides, extracted the public part on each side and imported it into the other side. The SSL connection works fine if I do not specify a CipherSpec. The error message is suggesting that I am missing the Cipherspec on the windows side ( which is the remote side ). I have looked at the file AMQCLCHL.TAB with a hex viewer, and I can see that DES_SHA_EXPORT is in there. ( It came from thr CLNTCONN channel I created on the server side ).
Does anyone have an idea as to what I might have missed when adding a CipherSpec value on the SVRCONN and CLNTCONN channels ?
