Login Problems with Internet Explorer


Users experiencing login problems using the Internet Explorer browser may need to do the following steps.


Disable SSL 3.0 and enable TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in Internet Explorer

You can disable the SSL 3.0 protocol in Internet Explorer by modifying the Advanced Security settings in Internet Explorer.
To change the default protocol version to be used for HTTPS requests, perform the following steps:


    1. On the Internet Explorer Tools menu, click Internet Options.
    2. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
    3. In the Security category, uncheck Use SSL 3.0 and check Use TLS 1.0, Use TLS 1.1, and Use TLS 1.2 (if available).
    4. Click OK.
    5. Exit and restart Internet Explorer.


    Note  After applying this workaround, Internet Explorer will fail to connect to Web servers that only support SSL up to 3.0 and don't support TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2.
