Adding Cipher Suite for Qlik Data Transfer on Windows 2012 R2

  ! The information in this article is provided as-is and to be used at own discretion. Depending on tool(s) used, customization(s), and/or other factors ongoing support on the solution below may not be provided by Qlik Support.

Note: All the steps below need to be performed by Windows Administrator on Windows level. These steps are not supported by Qlik Support. Consult Windows Support before proceeding.

Warning: This change can negatively affect NPrinting. NPrinting should not be installed on the same machine as Qlik Data Transfer. 

 

See the following article for Cipher Suite Requirements: Cipher Suite Requirements

To add the required Cipher Suite:

  1. In the Windows server, open gpedit.msc and click on Enabled for Computer Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Network --> SSL Configuration Settings --> SSL Cipher Suite Order
  2. Then copy past in the below to the Options field: (the below Ciphers include the needed Cipher for QDT May SR1 + the Cipher already present in our standard Windows 2012 R2 machine)

    TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA,TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA,TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5,TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA,TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256

     

  3. Click Apply and OK.
  4. (Important) Restart the server.

The Cipher Suites will now be correctly listed:

Hi @Benoit_C ,

Can you elaborate a bit on the NPrinting impact?
You say this can negatively impact NPrinting, but are we talking performance-wise or functionality-wise?

In this article, you also state that NPrinting should not be installed on the same machine as QDT.
I cannot find this on the Qlik Help & QDT System Requirements?
Is this a hard requirement?

Thanks.

Hi @Fred,

If you do use Qlik Data Transfer in a Production server we recommend to have a dedicated server for it.

 

For the NPrinting impact with Windows 2012, Qlik Data Transfer doesn't need the same Cipher than Nprinting, that's why we've put the warning.

For Qlik Data Transfer:

For NPrinting:

Guys
There is a dot '.' after MD5.
Replace with ','

TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA,TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256,TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA,TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5,TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA,TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256
