    SSL connection not working in Android Lollipop

    Hello all,

    I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this in, but it's the closest I could find.

    I've written an Android app that connects to HomeSeer and allows me to communicate with HomeSeer via the JSON interface. It works great and I've been use the SSL connection so that the user name and password are not sent over the wire in plain text.

    The problem is that Android Lollipop does not enable some of the older SSL cipher suites and as a result, the SSL handshake fails. I still have some digging to do on this to see if I can get android to enable the older ciphers.

    I have two questions:

    1) Is it possible to enhance the SSL Server in HS3 to enable the newer TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 protocols and newer, stronger cipher algorithms?
    2) Is it possible to use the MyHomeSeer service to comminicate with HomeSeer instead of connecting directly with SSL through my router?
