Waveset Adapter Not Able To Connect To AIX Server That Is Requiring The Aes256-ctr Cipher (Doc ID 1960937.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 09, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Waveset - Version 8.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Q1 by customer:

How can we enable aes256-ctr cipher for Waveset use?

Test connection now fails with the following message:

Abnormal disconnect from SSH Server: Could not connect to Algorithm negotiation fail

So where does Waveset get the ciphers it can use, and how could we add this required one..?
