StarTeam 14.2 throws a server encryption error when setting RSA R2 block cipher (Cipher Feedback).

GUI Build: 14.0.24
SDK Build: 14.0.2.27
Exception Class: com.starteam.exceptions.SDKRuntimeException
================

Exception Message:
==================
RC2_CFB encryption is not available on this platform.
Localized Exception Message:
==================
RC2_CFB encryption is not available on this platform.

Stack Trace:
============
com.starteam.exceptions.SDKRuntimeException: RC2_CFB encryption is not available on this platform.

This is by design. StarTeam no longer supports RSA R2 Block Cipher (Cipher Feedback) as it is not uniformly supported by Linux. This cipher is only supported on Windows, specifically by the Windows CryptoAPI. It is not supported by RSA through their JSafe implementation. 

With StarTeam 14.0 a decision was made to eliminate the use of windows dll's in the SDK and switch to using jar's instead. This was to improve interoperability between 32bit & 64bit java platforms and to support uniform installation in all of the web applications.

StarTeam continues to support all the other encryption models.
