KB Home | How do I use SSL with Microsoft SQL Server?
By default PaperCut uses an internal embedded database called Apache Derby which was initially developed by IBM and sold as Cloudspace DB. PaperCut can also be run on external databases like Microsoft SQL Server.
Some PaperCut customers may wish to utilize a SSL connection to their Microsoft SQL server. When making the changes as described in the manual at the end of this document, you will need to make an additional change to support SSL connection.
With the release of 14.2 we updated the version of Java PaperCut uses, in this updated Java engine some SSL connection issues were discovered between the Java database driver and MS SQL Server.
When using the ssl=required modification above, you may receive errors connecting to the database, in these circumstances we recommend the additional configuration steps:
Create a text file in the directory: [app-path]\server\custom\ named service.conf
Open the file in a text editor and add the following line: wrapper.java.additional.7=-Djsse.enableCBCProtection=false
