  • Resolves a problem that caused 3270 TELNET or SSL sessions to disconnect intermittently when TIMING MARK commands sent from the Host did not get a response.
  • This release includes a fix for a potential OpenSSL ASN1 BIO denial of service vulnerability reported in CVE-2012-2110. See Technical Note 1708 for details.

Reflection for HP 14.1 SP3

Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS 14.1 SP3

Reflection for ReGIS Graphics 14.1 SP3

Reflection 14.1 SP3 also includes New Features and Resolved Issues in Secure Shell Updates 14.1 SP3.

New Features

  • SSL/TLS connections now support TLS version 1.2.

Resolved Issues

  • The Show Host Files button in the File Transfer dialog box is now displayed correctly on Windows 7 when classic mode is enabled.
  • Reflection now installs an updated version of one of the Visual Basic software library files (Vbe6.dll version 6.5.10.54). This updated file addresses a security vulnerability described in MS12-046.
  • Reflection no longer shuts down unexpectedly when displaying the content of a Japanese UTF-8 file which has long lines without line wrapping.
  • The autowrap feature now handles double-byte characters correctly.
  • Reflection no longer shuts down unexpectedly when a macro uses the RemoveEvent method to remove events that have been defined using DefineEvent but have not been triggered.
  • Reflection now correctly retains a window size that stretches over dual monitors.
  • In the File Transfer dialog box, under Local directories, there is no longer a long delay when expanding folders on mapped drives.
  • This release includes a fix for a potential OpenSSL ASN1 BIO denial of service vulnerability reported in CVE-2012-2110. See Technical Note 1708 for details.

Reflection X 14.1 SP3

Starting with version 14.1 SP3, Low Bandwidth X (LBX) is no longer supported.

Reflection X 14.1 SP3 also includes New Features and Resolved Issues in Secure Shell Updates 14.1 SP3.

Resolved Issues

  • Multiple fixes and improvements to GLX/OpenGL support.
  • Fixes a problem that caused some graphics to be invisible until the mouse is dragged into the missing image area.
  • Fixes a problem with the display of characters in the title bar of an SAS X client when running in a Japanese Windows system.
  • Entering special characters using AltGr now works as expected.
  • Moving an OpenWindows X client no longer leaves remnants of previous window positions on the Windows desktop.

Reflection FTP Client 14.1 SP3

Reflection FTP Client 14.1 SP3 also includes New Features and Resolved Issues in Secure Shell Updates 14.1 SP3.

New Features

  • The file owner is now included in the Server pane display when you configure a detailed display (View > Server Pane(s) > Details).
  • The FTP Client now supports a new server type to support NonStop connections. In the Site Properties dialog box, for Server Type, select "NonStop (Guardian API)."
  • SSL/TLS connections now support TLS version 1.2.

Resolved Issues

  • Improved transfer speed for large files.
  • File names containing a semicolon are no longer truncated after a drag-and-drop download.
  • The FTP Client no longer closes unexpectedly during some file downloads when "Use structured listing data" is enabled on the Secure Shell tab of the Security Properties dialog box.

Secure Shell Updates 14.1 SP3

New Features

  • Secure Shell connections now support SHA256. Support for this newer, more secure algorithm is configured by default. You can view and edit settings in the Encryption tab of the Reflection Secure Shell Settings dialog box or modify settings using config file keywords. The updates made for this support include changes to:
    • Hashed message authentication codes (HMAC)

Encryption tab: When "SHA256" and "SHA512" are selected, the client now sends additional values during the key exchange to support newer OpenSSH servers.

New Macs keyword values: hmac-sha2-256, hmac-sha2-512

    • Signature algorithms

Encryption tab: The RSA signature list now includes "SHA256."

New x509rsasigtype keyword value: sha256

    • Key exchange algorithms

Encryption tab: The Key Exchange Algorithms list now includes "DH Group Ex SHA 256."

New HostKeyAlgorithms keyword values: x509v3-rsa2048-sha256, ssh-rsa-sha2-256@attachmate.com

  • The scp command line utility supports a new switch (-z) for downloading files from Windows servers. By default filename matches are case-sensitive for all downloads. When you use the -z option, downloads that include wildcards in the server filename specification are not case-sensitive.
  • The Reflection Key Agent menu includes a new option, "Use Only SHA1 Signatures." When this option is enabled (the default), the agent uses only SHA1 Signatures. To enable support for SHA256 signatures, uncheck this menu option. Note: Agent forwarding to some servers may not be supported when this option is unchecked because of the length of the reply to the server list request.
  • Starting with Service Pack 3, you must explicitly set the RSA signature type to MD5 to connect to older servers that don't support SHA1. Previously the client automatically changed the signature type from SHA1 to MD5 when connecting to version 2.1 to 2.4 (inclusive) servers. Because MD5 is now considered insecure, the client no longer makes this change automatically. This update may cause a connection failure if your current signature setting is SHA1 (the default). To connect to servers that don't support SHA1, use the Encryption tab of the Secure Shell Settings dialog box to change the RSA signature type to MD5.

Resolved Issues

  • The public key upload utility now correctly handles key uploads to both ODS-2 and ODS-5 Disk Structures on OpenVMS servers.
  • This service pack resolves an issue that caused certificate validation to fail intermittently with certificates configured to use OCSP without using NextUpdate.
  • This release includes a fix for a potential OpenSSL ASN1 BIO denial of service vulnerability reported in CVE-2012-2110. See Technical Note 1708 for details.

Reflection 14.1 SP1 also includes Resolved Secure Shell Issues 14.1 SP1.

Secure Shell Updates 14.1 SP1

The following Secure Shell updates apply to these Reflection applications:

Reflection for HP
Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS
Reflection for ReGIS Graphics
Reflection X
Reflection FTP Client

New Secure Shell Features 14.1 SP1

  • SFTP transfers now support SFTP version 4. This change provides UTF-8 character support. A new keyword, SftpVersion, is available to configure which version is used. Valid values are 3 and 4. When this setting is 4 (the default), the connection uses SFTP version 4 if the server supports it, and drops to version 3 if the server doesn’t support version 4. If this setting is 3, the client always uses SFTP version 3.
  • You can now configure the client to automatically add keys used for authentication to the Key Agent. To configure this in the Secure Shell settings dialog box, open the User Keys tab and select "Add key used for authenticating to host to key agent." To configure this in the config file, set AddAuthKeyToAgent=yes.
  • You can now configure the client to attempt public key authentication using all available keys, regardless of whether the Use checkbox is selected on the User Keys tab. To configure this in the Secure Shell settings dialog box, open the User Keys tab and select "Use all keys for authenticating to the host." To configure this in the config file, set AuthUseAllKeys=yes.

Resolved Secure Shell Issues 14.1 SP1

  • The registry key UseSshConfigSchemes now works correctly with the ssh2, scp2, and sftp2 command line utilities running on Windows 2008 R2.
  • Executing a sftp -l file-name command now returns an error as expected if the filename includes a hyphen (-) and the specified file doesn’t exist.
  • The scp command now executes as expected when the command includes two filenames that include an absolute path.

  • The sftp get command now handles wildcard characters correctly when logged into a chrooted environment.
  • When an scp copy to the server is interrupted by a server reboot, the error returned is now 7. Previously the client received a message saying, "an existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host, Connection closed to xxxx error: Send message failed." however, the return code was zero.
  • Smart card authentication no longer fails after about 30-50 repeated connections.
  • Entries in the ssh config file are now consistently case-sensitive.
  • When Reflection is configured for PKCS #11, it now automatically detects ActivIdentity client DLLs that are installed to the default Program Files folder as well as older DLLs that are installed in Windows\System32.
  • Connections to servers using the SSH1 protocol now work as expected.
  • From the Reflection Customization Manager, you can now select the Reflection Key Agent in the list of available features to install; and the Key Agent is now available in the list of Shortcuts to edit.
