Error Message:

If you are getting the error:

An authenticaion error has occurred.

The function requested is not supported.

This could be due to CredSSP encryption orarcle remedition.

With the release of the March 2018 Security bulletin, there was a fix that addressed a CredSSP, “Remote Code Execution” vulnerability (CVE-2018-0886) which could impact RDP connections.

Solution:

  • Open a Command Prompt window as Administrator.
  • Run the following command to add a registry value:

REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\CredSSP\Parameters\ /v AllowEncryptionOracle /t REG_DWORD /d 2

I have worked with Blackwood IT for many years and can honestly say that they are great people who work fast to resolve issues.

Thanks for your support! Please get in touch if this has helped you.
