Resolution 1


Enable the TLS Protocol. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. In the Start menu, type regedit and then press Enter.
  2. Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\Schannel\Protocols\TLS 1.0\Client
  3. Right Click Protocols folder and export it to desktop as a backup before making changes
  4. Change Enabled to be "1" (Enabled = 1).
  5. To apply the changes you need to restart your Orion server.


Resolution 2


You can completely remove the TLS 1.0 sub-key under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\Schannel\Protocols\ and then restart your Orion server, which will leave the TLS protocol enabled by default.
