V-Technologies, the publisher of the popular Starship shipping software for Sage 100 has issued the following advisory regarding the possible need to update your Starship server to ensure compatibility with the latest encryption technologies.
UPS and FedEx security updates are impacting the StarShip Server Minimum System Requirements! OnTrac, Estes and Old Dominion have also made security changes.
The updated requirements reflect the move from SHA-1 encryption to the new and more secure industry standards of SHA-256 (SHA-2) encryption and TLS protocol.
Simply stated, older operating systems will no longer be able to communicate with any carriers once they finalize their move to SHA-2 and TLS 1.2.
Does this affect me?
Specifically, if your StarShip Server is running on:
- Windows Server 2003
- Windows XP
- Windows Server 2008
- Windows Vista
you should plan to upgrade to one of the following compatible operating systems:
- Windows Server 2012R2
- Windows Server 2012
- Small Business Server 2011
- Windows Server 2008R2 SP1
- Windows 10
- Windows 8
- Windows 7 SP1
