How to start using Confluence CLI given there is an exection invoking a simple command such as login for example

I am getting this error on both client and plugin versions when attempting to execute a simple login command

Unable to log in to server: https://<domain>/rpc/soap-axis/confluenceservice-v1with user: admin. Cause: ; nested exception is: javax.net.ssl.SSLException: Received fatal alert: bad_record_mac


How can i possibly get passed this blocker and start using the system?

I've read through this document already (https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/ACLI/Installation+and+Use) , have verified the requirements but still getting this error

Thanks. Any help is very much appreicated.

You're using an SSL connection and your CLI connection is not providing the right certificates or protocols, so the server won't let it in.

Try this first:

openssl s_client -connect myconfluenceserver:443 -msg -debug
It usually tells you more about what is going wrong
