GWPNS to only accept connections using TLS1.2 or above

https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7024762

On August 10th, Micro Focus is planning on moving GWPNS to only accept connections using TLS1.2 
or above.
 
This will affect customers using Messenger 3.x iOS clients connected to a 3.x backend.  This will also affect those CalDav customers who have specifically disabled TLS1.2 as the old NPNS did not support TLS1.2.
 
For Messenger 3.x customers, the solution will be to upgrade to Messenger 18.x.  For CalCav customers, the change will need to be made to the configuration files to disallow TLS versions before 1.2.

Pardon my ignorance...

What is GWPNS? I don't recognize the acronym and neither does Google!

Thanks for that catch...sometimes we get so used to using acronyms that we forget to spell them out.  This one is GroupWise Push Notification Service.   This is mostly used by the Messenger mobile clients.  Calendar Publisher also uses it.  Up to the date of this change, the server has only been using the earlier versions of TLS.  

Hope this helps 🙂

GroupWise Push Notification Server/Service Or something like that. It's what allows us to push notifications to Apple devices even when the app isn't active.
