Rishi T Sep 16, 2019 11:15AM UTC

Hi... I am getting 'ReadHandShakeRecord' error in Burp Suite Community edition v2.1.02. I have java Version 8 Update 221 installed on my Windows Server 2012 machine. I also set Proxy correctly in Burp Suite and in Browser too and also installed CA certificate. Can you please help me in resolving the issue?

Hi Mike, Here are more details required:

Though i installed CA certificate correctly for Chrome Browser.
