1. About the OCSP.
I see NO OPTION to change this to off. This alone means you have to get back to Oracle or ask folk why this needs to be done.
2. About the control panel.
I am using Windows 8 and I need to know how to get the Java Control Panel on my computer screen so I can change the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) to off in the Advanced Section of the Java Control Panel. Does anyone know how to do this?
