This issue occurs due to a size key of 4096 that is not supported by the current JAVA version of NeoLoad. It is supported starting from 1.8.0_172 and NeoLoad uses the _112 version. But we can't upgrade to that version because of regressions that may be introduced and it won't work as is.

Something that you could try is to force NeoLoad to negotiate a different cipher. I do not know if it will be enough but it's worth a try. This a procedure that you could try:

  1. Stop NeoLoad
  2. Edit <install_dir>\conf\controller.properties file
  3. Go to the [General] section and put that key in comment "https.ciphers.whitelist" by using a # character at the beginning of the line. Then add again on a new line that same option "https.ciphers.whitelist=" without anything after the equal sign.
  4. Save
  5. Start NeoLoad and try again.

Hello Bruno,

Opening a secure connection to a webserver via https requires the use of SSL Certificates with DH-Keys which has a prime size bigger than 2048.
I suggest that you either rearrange ssl's cipher list, or you can use custom DH parameters related to the web server you have in your environement.

Best Regards,
