(OO) Support Tip: SSL/TLS Error Submitting Headless Flow using RSFlowinvoke from OO 9.x

RSFlowInvoke stopped working after the KB3172605 patch was installed on the windows server and now the flow is giving the following error:System.Net.WebException: The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel. at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse() at RepairSystem.RSFlowInvoke.ExecuteHeadlessFlow_NoRetry(String url, String username, String password, String authType, Boolean encrypted, Boolean verbose)

The patch (KB3172605 ) disables SHA-1 in CryptoAPI and because OO 9.x runs in Java 1.6, only SHA-1 is available in Java 1.6 . As a consequence the SSL communication channel cannot be established.

There are two solutions to this problem:
• Enable SHA-2 ciphers in Java 1.6
Unfortunately Java has added support for SHA-2 starting with Java 1.7 only . Using 9.x with Java 1.7 is not possible due to incompatibility issues
• Use JRSFlowInvoke to make the HTTP requests
This is the only solution for the moment. JRSFlowInvoke runs inside Java and there are no dependencies on Microsoft APIs
