Question
How to resolve the "Received fatal alert: handshake_failure" error?
Answer
The Received fatal alert: handshake_failure exception occurs if a Collaborator client runs on Java 6 while the Collaborator server runs on Java 7 or 8. To avoid the exception, the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files (for Java 7 or 8) should be installed for the server's Java VM. The files can be downloaded from here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html#other
