As of September 2015, Banner users may update their version of Java from 7 to 8. Once upgrading, however, users must adjust some Transport Layer Security (TLS) settings to enable Banner to run correctly. Those settings are displayed below. If you are uncomfortable changing these settings on your own or you require additional assistance, please call the CIT Help Desk at x58197 or email us at cit@oberlin.edu.

Please note: All users, both those who have Windows as well as Macs, must make these TLS settings changes. The screenshots below were taken on a Windows computer, but the instructions are the same for Mac. Mac users should go to System Preferences and choose the Java preference pane to make the changes.

  1. Open the Control Panel for Java, click on the Advanced Tab, and scroll to the bottom.
