Use PayPal cc processing for website? Deadline to quit using TLS1.0 approaching

<< < (2/2)

Southern Jewel:
I can only imagine how frustrated you were.
I have to wonder if this had something to do with my frustration with my hotmail email addy back earlier this year with my iPhone.
I didn't use outlook in the setup of the email for my iPhone...added it via a hotmail work-around.

Out of the blue I receive a message that my hotmail account is unable to connect on my phone.
Checked with my iPad...nope, can't connect.
No probs with my gmail(s).
No probs with my laptop nor my desktop.

Thanks to posts on various forums, I found that I wasn't able to use the workaround for my hotmail any longer on my iPhone.
Outlook was required for my iPhone and iPad (and according to forums Android based phones were having issues also).

I don't know if this has anything to do with the TSL1.0 enabling or disabling but thought it might be worth mentioning.


Spent tons of time trying to find how to get Outlook to not use TSL1.0, and FINALLY found it.  If your server has TSL1.0 turned off for PCI compliance, you can't use Outlook to access your emails, and you have Windows7 or higher, it's an easy registry fix.

run regedit
go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\Schannel\Protocols
create key named: TLS 1.1
create another key named: TLS 1.2
inside of each of those, create a key named: Client
inside each of the Client keys, create a DWord value named: DisabledByDefault
leave value of each instances of DisabledByDefault set to 00000000
reboot the machine

now, in outlook, edit the email account(s) to where it uses TSL encryption for connecting to the account(s)

Another option is to simply use Thunderbird, the latest version of it has TSL1.1 and 1.2 enabled by default.

To simplify the process of editing the registry, I have attached files to fix it (for windows7,8,&10) for you.  Simply run the two attachments and they will add those keys/subkeys/and DWord values auto-magically

Thanks to RainingForks blog for the info on how to fix it

A bit more on the TSL1.0 thing - I just came across the fact that unless you're letting Windows7 automatically do updates (which many people aren't) it reportedly doesn't have TSL1.1 or 1.2 support. 

Just think of all those people out there running 7 without latest updates.  Not to mention all the people that are still using XP or Vista. That's a huge customer base to be blocking out from ecommerce sites.

On the plus side, think of all the internet cafes in Nigeria and such that are still using older systems. That's a win  :P

Southern Jewel:
I have a laptop that is still running Windows 7.
It's in a closet not being used, but I need to remember this should I boot it back up.
Plus, I just gave away a desktop tower that had Windows 7 on it that had been in the back of a closet for who knows how long?
I swear I'm not a hoarder...

Yep alot of the internet cafe's are running older, older computer systems
