Avocent 8020 KVM Java Icedtea Viewer

This command in Debian/Ubuntu/Mint will get everything need installed for most Java based KVM viewers:

sudo apt install icedtea-netx
The following additional packages will be installed:
  ca-certificates-java icedtea-netx-common openjdk-8-jre openjdk-8-jre-headless

It seems every other updated version of Java or Icedtea breaks things and I will save the frustration of Java for another post.

*If you get the icedteaweb window but nothing loads or prompts it is probably your security settings that won't even prompt to run it.   See this article to solve that problem.

To fix this error you need to edit the java.security file manually (I recommend updating all in case there is any confusion about what version is being executed):

If your browser tries to download the file, make sure that the action for JNLP files is to open with Icedtea

Solution for OpenJDK 11 style.

The difference here is that java.security lives in /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64/conf/security/java.security

Do the same edits as we show for JDK Version 8 below.

However, if that doesn't work, you can just comment out all instances that contain "disabledAlgorithms" and that should get it going.
 

Solution for OpenJDK Version 8 and older

 

sudo vi /usr/lib/jvm/*/jre/lib/security/java.security

Notice the * (wildcard) this will have vi open up every version's java security for you to change or you could also try the most recent version.

Make the following line look like this:

jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3, RC4

jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms=MD2

After that the error was fixed and finally the KVM viewer worked again (I wish you could just use VNC or other more reliable ways).

*Update - newer versions have a few more config lines you have to fix:

jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms=MD2
jdk.jar.disabledAlgorithms=MD2
jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3, RC4
