I'm trying to log in to Spotify Linux using Facebook, but I'm seeing the "Spotify desktop client communication failed" error.
This is the URL that fails to load is https://login.spotilocal.com:4371/, which does correctly resolve to 127.0.0.1.
I'm running "stable" Spotify (spotify-client_0.9.17.1.g9b85d43.7-1_amd64) on Ubuntu 15.04.
I read that logging in to Spotify directly using my Facebook credentials can work, but I'm not comfortable doing this - especially given how I saw elsewhere that the credentials are not transmitted directly to Facebook, but via Spotify servers...
Server has a weak, ephemeral Diffie-Hellman public key ERR_SSL_WEAK_SERVER_EPHEMERAL_DH_KEY
An error occurred during a connection to login.spotilocal.com:4371. SSL received a weak ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key in Server Key Exchange handshake message. (Error code: ssl_error_weak_server_ephemeral_dh_key)
The Firefox console shows the error on the requesting page better than Chrome:
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can you please let me know your Firefox version?
Also can you please try to install the latest non-stable version and let me know if the SSL issue persists?
Alternatively you can go to about:config in firefox and change security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes 128/256 to false.
Once you get your autologin.blob just save it ( look for prefs file ) and set security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes 128/256 once again.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask 🙂
