When the Oracle Java Browser plug-in is used to launch Reflection for the Web — and the Java version is newer than October 2022 — some cryptographic operations will fail due to new constraints imposed by Java. Features adversely affected include X.509 authentication and OCSP. For more information, contact Customer Support.
If you use a multi-server installation (where MSS is hosted on a different machine than Reflection for the Web), on some networks it may be necessary to add a reference to MSS that refers to the Reflection for the Web server. To add a reference:
Open and edit MSSData\serverconfig.props.
Add a new property named RWebHost with a URL value that refers to the Reflection for the Web hostname and context value of /rweb-client.
Note: The URL must be formatted as a Java Properties value, which includes colons that are escaped.
