Pinned topic Force Encryption and Domain selection for Controller

‏2012-06-08T14:18:07Z |
Does anyone know if it is a setting that would not allow users to unchecking "Use 128 bit encryption" in the controller?

Also, I would like to put my domain name in the domain field for user authentication. Can it be done?

    Dear Hank,

    Unchecking 'Use 128 bit encryption' has no effect in TRC. Connections in TRC between the controller and target are always encrypted, and this can not be disabled.

    Regarding the domain name, I believe there is already an RFE (Request for Enhancement) for this. You can vote for this RFE or if it's not the same as what you need, raise a new RFE. Information about the RFE process can be found here:

      Thanks for the reply. One question tho, what is that button used for if not to disable it? I know my compliance admin will be asking me the same question.

        Hi Hank,

        The underlying code and technology used by TRC is also used in other IBM products, tools and services. The checkbox is an artifact from older versions of that code. In TRC, it is simply ignored.

        HTH,

          Chris I am looking on TRC documentation about this kind of Encryption, and can´t find information about it. Can you please help me, I need a formal information about the comunication between controllers and targets (Aditional we are using a Gateway).

          Thanks!
