4215 Java error: When connecting from IPS event viewer

Answered Question


I received a java error when trying to connect to my 4215 with Cisco IPS event viewer. It is as follows:

IOException in open Subscription(): java.security.cert.CertificateExpiredException: NotAfter: Sunday March 29

Is the web server running on 10.x.x.x:443? Please check the communication parameters of the device.

I can set the date on my pc back to last week and all works fine like b4. I have tried updating my java to the latest version and created a new certificate from the IPS.

Any help would greatly be appreciated:

The issue can be resolved by following the steps as below

1.Login to the sensor.

2.Run the tls generate-key command.

3.Make sure the certificate is generated.

4.Add the device again. It should work now.
