Yes! 128 bit encryption is possible using IPWorks SSL, but first you will need to have 128 bit encryption enabled on your system. You can then use our component and set the cipher strength for strong encryption (128-bit).

You can see the actual cipher strength used for the connection by monitoring the SSLStatus event.

If you do not have 128-bit encryption enabled on your system you can download a patch from Microsoft.

If you are a U.S. or Canadian user, you can download the 128 bit encryption patch from Microsoft at:
