From 8.2.4 version onwards when we have to enable support connection we have to copy support_connection.tar file to Airwave server using scp and this can be done using a MAC or Unix platform.
When we do this using the MAC we might come across the below Cipher error.
no matching cipher found: client aes128-cbc,aes192-cbc,aes256-cbc server email@example.com,aes128-ctr,aes192-ctr,aes256-ctr,firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com
The reason for this issue is Mac is looking for a different set of ssh ciphers, we need to have this added to the sshd_config on the Mac.
We can follow the below steps on MAC to do this,
- Enable Remote login by navigating to System Preferences -> Sharing -> Check Remote Login box
# sudo vi /etc/sshd_config
- Add the below lines towards the end of the file
# sudo launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ssh.plist
# sudo launchctl load –w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ssh.plist
Now we should be able to copy the file from MAC to Airwave without the cipher error.
